"This publication is a great reference and a starting point for those interested in the medicinal uses of Latin American plants, with particular emphasis on their safety and efficacy. The price of the book is reasonable, considering the extensive sources of information, and the number of species covered." --Hector Rodolfo Juliani, Rutgers University, in Economic Botany, No: 64(1), 2010, pp. 83 "James A. Duke is one of the world's most recognized leading authors on the subject of medicinal herbs. This is a valuable reference book, well organized and written in an easily understandable, user friendly format." --In Making Scents, Winter/ Spring 2009, Vol. 13, No. 2 "Any one working on the medicinal plants of Latin America and wanting to gain an insight into what research has been undertaken on a particular species will find this book essential reading. As with all the books produced by James Duke it is informative and provides a wealth of basic information. ... The power of this book is in the electronic version where the data are searchable, and it is easy to link many of the references to their sources such as PubMed. For each of the 500 species the authors provide its accepted Latin bionomial scientific name, authority, family synonyms and common names, along with a code that relates to the safety of the species relative to coffee." --Monique S. J. Simmonds writing in Expl Agric.,2010, volume 46 (1)
