Description:

Paperback. 60 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.1in.Hundreds of plant species are harvested in the Himalaya and traded at local, regional, and international levels. Recent studies indicate that the annual trade in medicinal plants and related products from the Himalaya amounts to thousands of tons of roots, rhizomes, tubers, fruits, leaves, etc, with an annual value of millions of US Dollar. It is difficult, however, to analyze and understand trade and markets on the basis of available studies, as these do not employ common terminology or methodology.
