Excerpt from Pharmaceutical Botany: A Text-Book for Students of Pharmacy and Science

The aim has been to eliminate from this book all those topics that are of minor importance to the student and practitioner of Pharmacy. As a pharmacist and teacher, the writer feels that the botanical preparation for Pharmocognosy and Materia Medica, in those colleges where Botany is given for one year, should include mainly the structural and systematic aspects of the science. In the Medico-Chirurgical College, of Philadelphia, Botany is taught the first year, extending over a period of 155 hours. The author has introduced in this concise volume the important subject matter of his lectures given to first year students, and has omitted laboratory directions for the obvious reason that fixed subjects for laboratory study are unnecessary. It is not a book on Pharmacognosy, however, since it does not describe how one drug differs from another of the same group in all of its details.

The work is included in two parts. Part I is largely devoted to the morphology (gross and minute) and, to a less extent, the physiology of the Angiosperms. Part II deals with the taxonomy of plants, mainly but not wholly of medicinal value, together with the parts used and the names of the official and non-official drugs obtained from these.

The author does not claim sole originality for the facts presented, but has consulted many sources of information, mention of which will be found in the bibliography of the text.

Acknowledgment is here made to his esteemed friends, Dr. Francis E. Stewart of the Medico-Chirurgical College and Dr. John M. Macfarlane of the Univ. of Penna., for valuable assistance in the reading of the proofs and preparation of the index.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Medicine and botany have been inextricably linked since the dawn of humanity as we know it. The use of plants to heal, soothe and cure ailments goes back as far as recorded human history and likely a great deal longer. The roots of both mainstream modern medicine and modern herbalism are planted in the physic garden. Heber Youngken was determined in this book to boil down to the essentials of Pharmaceutical Botany. Those gems of knowledge which would be essential to those students of pharmacy who needed to gain a good grounding of the subject matter fast. Marketed towards first year college students this work will be readily useful to those with even a basic scientific grounding or an enthusiastic amateur botanist or gardener. The first part of the book focuses primarily on the morphology of plants, particularly angiosperms, in both the gross and minute sense. Youngken is commendably thorough in explaining how a plant is composed, the exact appearance and nature of each part of the organism. He explores the purpose and ordinary method of functioning for each element of the plant as well as the deep geological history of plant life and their ecological relationships with surrounding flora and fauna. The taxonomy of plants is explored with a particular emphasis on the medicinal uses and compounds contained within each plant and those which carry characteristics in common across an entire plant genus. In particular he gives practical information about the part of the plant used for an active ingredient in medicine. Pharmaceutical Botany is a valuable piece of information for any budding herbalist, from a treasured part of the German herbal medical tradition.
