Man has used plants as a source of medicine since ancient times. Initially, these formed the bulk of folk or ethnomedicine, practiced in India and some other parts of the world. Later, a considerable part of this indigenous knowledge was documented and passed into the organised system of medicine. This book contains articles covering information on medicinal plants used for curing various ailments, with special reference to India, those on herbal formulation and their standardization; herbal remedies for antibacterial therapy; commercial use of medicinal plants and ethno-medico-botany of some sacred plants. The book also provides an account of traditional medicinal plants and their prospective applications in the present scenario. It would serve as a useful reference for botanists, phytochemists and those related to the pharmaceutical industry.
