Researchers of medicinal plants often find unfamiliar references to herbs when reading through ethnobotanical literature. Very often, they are familiar with the plant but not with the name used in a given context. This book eliminates the time-consuming task of further research by providing 28,000 common names of medicinal plants in a single source.

International in scope, this unique reference allows matching of scientific and common names through a comprehensive cross index. The first volume is organized alphabetically by scientific name while the other two volumes are a cross index by common name. Phylum, order, and family are also provided as well as the language of the common name which helps to identify its geographic location.
