Ethnomedicine and Aromatherapy is designed as a reference book for M.Sc. students, Research scholar, Herbalists and for students of Pharmacognosy and pharmacological sciences. A large part of this book is a compilation based on field observation and Ph. D. works. A number of selected references and bibliography are given in part IV to support description and interpretation.
