New at ORI Library: medicinal and magical plants of Southern Africa: an annotated checklist

Southern Africa has an extremely rich and diverse flora comprising  about 24 500 taxa making up about 10% of the world's flora. It is also home to a wide diversity of cultural groups who utilise flora for traditional medicine. This publication is based on information derived from ethnomedicinal works as well as toxicological, ecological, floristic and specimen data sources and is now available in the ORI Library.
