Understanding Medicinal Plants: Their Chemistry and Therapeutic Action

Prof. Bryan Hanson

Instructor's Resource Page

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.

More information on the book: Taylor & Francis, reviews.

Thanks, Bryan
