Handbook of Poisonous and Injurious Plants
The second edition of this book is created to assist the clinician in the initial response to the needs of a child or adult exposed to a poisonous or injurious plant. The book has methodically enhanced the previous edition’s botanical rigor with insights from both pharmacognosy and clinical medicine to make it a truly comprehensive source. It lists common plants that might lead to the development of the symptom complex and describes the mechanisms of action of the implicated toxin, additional clinical manifestations, and specific therapeutics for each presentation. This content is fully revised with the latest treatments. There is an entirely new photo program to improve the quality and resolution of the plant specimen photos, and the color photos of the plants are now integrated within the text and next to the plant entry. Anyone who has an interest in plants will find this book useful.
