Understanding Medicinal Plants: Their Chemistry and Therapeutic Action

Prof. Bryan Hanson

DePauw University

Dept. of Chemistry & Biochemistry

Understanding Medicinal Plants is designed to help people understand how medicinal plants exert their effects on the human body. It was written for the scientifically curious, and aims for a middle ground between a technical work and and an overly simplified book for lay audiences. I would love to have your feedback (please e-mail me) on any aspect of the book, suggestions, or how you have used it in your classes.

Understanding Medicinal Plants is published by Taylor & Francis.
