Medicinal Plants is not just a repetitive reproduction of available Botanical information on 420 medicinal plants commonly used in Ayurveda but more than that. It provides valuable dates to the Botanist and to the medical clan. Besides classifying these plants into 106 families, he places them in terms of Ayurveda qualities, like Rasa, Guma, Virya and Upaka, and their inter-relationship.
