Poisonous Plants by Dietrich Frohne

Book Description

Many garden flowers, decorative trees, house plants and wild plants contain substances which can lead to poisoning in man or animals. Next to medicines and household chemicals, plants or parts of plants occupy third place in the statistics of Poison Information Centres relating to children. Plants from all over the world are found in most domestic environments. The majority covered in this book originate in temperate zones, and the text comprehensively identifies potentially dangerous plants, their distribution, level of toxicity, symptoms of poisoning and suggested treatment. Illustrations range from actual size color and black/white photos to enlarged representations of microscopically recognizable features in fruits and leaves. The first edition of Poisonous Plants was extremely well received, praised for its combination of wide coverage, ease of use and superb color illustrations. The second edition is a complete revision, and contains over 50% additional text and illustrative material, with special attention to North America. The new edition of this practical reference work has proved invaluable to a wide range of professional groups.
