The book is divided into three separate sections: * Family - Each monograph is organized under a family of plants (for example, Liliaceae) * Genera - The various genera that are included under the family name are tabulated (for example, the family Liliaceae contains 94 genera) * Species - In each monograph, some species are dealt with separately (for example, in Liliaceae, four species are included under their Latin names and major common names) Each monograph includes the following information: * Alternative common names * Active ingredients * Uses - both traditional and modern * Adverse effects * References Drug names are designated by their recommended or proposed International Non-proprietary Names (rINN or pINN); when those are not available, clinical names or brand names are used. The material is drawn from the fifteenth edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals. This volume is critical for any health professional or homeopathic practitioner with an interest in herbal medicines. * Named to Doody's Core Titles 2013, a collection development tool for health sciences libraries of all sizes, by Doody Enterprises* Surpasses the Physician's Desk Reference by including clinical case studies and independent expert analysis * Complete index of drug names * Most complete cross referencing of drug-drug interactions available
