Books: Medicinal Plants of Mauritius and of the world
Abstract: Throughout the ages, Human beings have relied on Nature for their basic needs and, not least, medicines. Plants have formed the basis of sophisticated traditional medicines systems in existence for thousands of years and continue to provide Mankind with new remedies. Mauritius, like many tropical countries, has a unique flora and a rich medicinal pharmacopoeia, which unfortunately remains under-utilized by the general public. The present publication brings together data on the therapeutic potential of different types of plants: aromatic, ornamental, dye bearing and spice plants amongst others. 175 plants have been described and are illustrated with 283 colour photographs.
