A Laboratory Manual of Pharmacognosy serves as a complete guide to refer as a manual and as well as for recording experiments. This book presents four major chapters supported by 31 experiments, including some introductory experiments to understand the subject. It provides clean and self-explanatory diagrams in transverse section and morphology section. This manual provides an ease to students and faculty to record their observations and results as well as to draw diagrams opposite the figures through proper space given for such experiments.
It is prepared keeping in view the latest Diploma Pharmacy syllabus of Pharmacy Council of India. This book will be useful for students and faculty in Diploma Pharmacy, B Pharmacy as well as UG and PG students of Ayurveda and Unani medicine.
