The topics treated all revolve around the chemistry, pharmacology, and biology of these plants. The importance of pharmaceuticals derived from plant sources is described, together with the potential of ethnomedicine for providing new leads in the search for bioactive constituents. The amazing biodiversity of the Americas is underlined in this book and an idea is given of the urgency with which the flora must be studied.
