Peterson field guide to Medicinal plants and herbs of Eastern and Central North America

Description :

Medicinal plants are increasingly well regarded as supplements and sometimes as alternatives to prescription drugs. Steven Fortser and James A. Duke have used recent advances in the study of medicinal plants and their combined experience of over 100 years to completely update the Peterson Field Guide to Medicinal Plants. The clear and concise text identifies the key traits, habitats, uses and warnings for 530 of the most significant medicinal plants in the eastern and central United States and Canada, including both native and alien species. More than seven hundred images, the organization-by-color-system, and simplified warnings make identifying medicinal plants fast and easy.
