Rate this:
This is a book designed to enhance the appreciation of the medicinal history of Australia's flora, as well as its unique medicinal contributions to everyday life and its possible future potential. Renewed attention to the medical importance of Australian plants is discussed, particularly in relation to the advent of drug-resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. For instance, new Eucalypts can yield higher grade oils, and essential oils from the Melaleuca and Leptospermum show excellent therapeutic potential. The book also covers the commercial value of resins, gums, and tannins. *** " excellent follow-up to the first volume of this series.... Highly recommended." - Choice, November 2011 *** "Williams, a clinical herbalist and acupuncturist, has done a beautiful job in writing a technical book that offers very accessible reading. Sections are nicely organized according to the type of plants or their uses." - The American Herb Association 27:4, 2012
