Botany and Healing: Medicinal Plants of New Jersey and the Region
Cecil C. Still (au) (il)
Plant species are being lost before we recognize their potential as sources of new medicines. This is equally true for the plants close to home. New Jersey (NJ) is extraordinarily rich in plant resources. This vol. describes 500 place species found in NJ & in nearby areas that have been used medicinally. Lists plants by family &, within each family, by genus & species, to underscore the close relationships among medicinally valuable species. Each entry discusses both the natural history & the historical & modern medicinal uses of the plant: scientific & common names, description, habitat, geographic range, & preparations & applications in Native Amer., European, African, & Asian herbal traditions. Most species are illus. with line drawings. Glossary.
