Ethnobotany. Principles and Applications, Cotton, C.M.
16 Cotton, C.M. Ethnobotany. Principles and Applications
Chichester John Wiley & Sons 1996 047195537X / 9780471955375 Paperback Good 
A very few illustrations, pp x, 424, paperback, very slightly worn. A standard work. [Interest in ethnobotany has increased dramatically in recent years. The search for new medicines by the pharmaceutical industry has turned to plant natural products and to ethnobotanical studies as a first step in bioprospecting. These studies are making a valuable contribution to the cataloguing of biological diversity and hence to the conservation of endangered ecosystems and the human societies which depend upon them. Discussing traditional methods of plant management as well as plant use, this textbook is an authoritative and fascinating introduction to this exciting area of plant biology. Citing examples from throughout the world and drawing on a wide range of source materials, the author describes the history of the interactions between plants and people and the concepts, methodology and future direction of ethnobotanical study. Capturing current interest in traditional medicine, as well as the potential for exciting new drug discoveries, Ethnobotany: Principles and Applications is an informative, stimulating and timely text which includes an extensive bibliography.]

Plant Biographies: Plant's Eye View of the Planet and Man (CD-ROM), Eland, Sue. (Gren Lucas, foreword)
17 Eland, Sue. (Gren Lucas, foreword) Plant Biographies: Plant's Eye View of the Planet and Man (CD-ROM)
Plant Biographies 2013 0957653905 / 9780957653900 New 
CDROM. (Postage will be reduced). A wonderful cornucopia of information on the uses, importance, history, economics, folklore and literature of plants. This work draws together, in plain language, direct and indirect data on plant species which is not readily available to the general public. The plants include trees, palms, shrubs, annuals, biennials, perennials, cacti, seaweeds, lichens, ferns, mosses and fungi (excluding the larger fungi such as mushrooms). The text covers many common and foreign plant names, their social cultural and economic uses, their involvement in customs and events, their association with individual people and places, with literature and folklore, their history and artistic influence, and their environmental impact. On the CD the main text, presented in dictionary format, covers over 3000 pages. It is preceded by Contents, Introduction and an extensive list of Definitions of Botanical Names and is followed by a Bibliography and an over 300-page comprehensive General Index. The alphabetic presentation of botanical and common names (regardless of language) enables the reader not only to find the species concerned quickly but also to see at a glance those occasions identified on which a botanical or common name applies to more than one species. The genera themselves are integrated into the dictionary too and within each genus those of its species for which there are entries appear in similar order. The General Index gives the reader the great advantage of a highly refined searching tool embracing detailed breakdowns and access via nationalities, tribes, religions, individuals and most disciplines, including any alternative names by which these and the many subjects might be known.].
