Review:

"...an invaluable resource that will become a critical reference to a great diversity of specialists in the fields of public health, chemistry, phytomedicine, ethnobotany, toxicology, and botany." -Journal of Natural Products
"No library can be without [it] and no specialist can do without consulting [it]."
-American Scientist
"...will certainly be consulted by physicians, pharmacists, and herbal healers..."
-New Phytologist
"...this volume belongs on the shelves of medical and botanical libraries. Large public libraries and academic libraries...may also want to consider it."
-Booklist - Reference Books Bulletin"This two-volume work (the first appearing in 1999, the second in 2001) is a veritable compendium on 50 medicinal plants of the world. Gleaned from over 4,700 literature sources, Medicinal Plants of the World will appeal to professionals in medicine, pharmacology, and herbal practice. The author, a biologist, selected species of plants based on consumer interest, available data, and level of use in developing countries. . .Compiling such a vast amount of information from an extensive pool of literature was certainly a labor of love and an abiding service for researchers. We only hope that future volumes will appear. An encyclopedic work of lasting utility, Medicinal Plants of the World is recommended for public, academic, medical, and research libraries."-E-streams Electronic Book Reviews

Review of Volume 1:*
"This book is a wonderful contribution to the knowledge of medicinal plants of the world. . .Mr. Ross is to be congratulated and complimented for such a well-done book. It is an invaluable resource that will become a critical reference to a great diversity of specialists in the fields of public health, chemistry, phytomedicine, ethnobotany, toxicology, and botany."-Journal of Natural Products

"The editor has neatly merged diffuse knowledge from a complex field to provide an educational resource pertinent to researchers, drug developers, and pharmaceutical and clinical services. . .an interesting introduction to the intriguing field of ethnopharmacology and traditional medicine."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"Ivan A. Ross, a biologist who has done toxicology research for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, created quite a stir with the extensive research and painstaking documentation that characterized the first volume in this series. The second volume is no less impressive in scope or detail, and contains a number of helpful additions that improve its function as a reference tool." - Medic al Reference Services Quarterly

"This volume offers an unprecedented collection of vital scientific information for pharmacologists, herbal medicine practioners, drug developers, phytochemists, medicinal chemists, phytologists, toxicologists, and researchers who want to explore the use of little-known information about these plants and open appication horizons for the many novel drugs and drug candidates found in them." -Acta Botanica Hungarica

"...Recommended for large public libraries, as well as college and university libraries." - American Reference Books Annual
