The book reflects the results of the authors’ in-depth investigations on these medicinal plant species for many years. On the basis of systematic compilation and analysis of the illustrations of the efficacies of these medicinal plants in the voluminous traditional medicinal literatures, the book introduced the latest medical progress in plant biochemistry, pharmacological, toxi - cological and clinical research. For each medicinal plant species mentioned, the authors also give pertinent comments and suggestions on sustainable exploitation and utilization, as well as safety in clinical applications. All these might contribute greatly to the clarification of the mechanism of the role of the traditional medicine plants, to the modernization of the science of traditional medicinal plants, and to guidance for future clinical applications. The book is well written with few errors. Abundant illustrations help readers understand the explanations. The book is suitable for professionals who engage in plant science, pharmaceutical research, production, development, testing as well as sales staff or other persons who are interested in these fields.
