Summary
A survey of the current literature on medicinal uses of tropical plants, detailing the drug discovery work of major pharmaceutical companies as well as smaller-scale regional efforts. Discusses habitat protection, ethical issues and intellectual property rights, and the practical aspects of natural products chemistry, in sections on biodiversity prospecting, drug development, and conservation; and country and regional programs in medicinal plant research and health care. Includes guidelines for plant collections
