  • Valuable resource to students and researchers studying botany, ethnobotany, natural products, pharmacognosy and medicinal chemistry
  • Available for the first time in English
  • Co-Authored with local scientists from the region

 Medicinal Plants of Central Asia: Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan is the first English-language book detailing medicinal plant diversity in the region. More than two hundred of the most important medicinal plants of Central Asia are listed and it includes many whose medicinal uses and activities are being compiled for the first time.  Information on the taxonomy, morphology, ecology, ethnobotany, chemistry, and pharmacology of plants from this region are presented with hundreds of beautiful color photographs. The book is co-authored by scientists from Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and the U.S. and draws upon a rich source of local knowledge. The extensive English-Russian linguistic glossary to ecological, botanical, chemical, and medical terms is the first of its kind for this type of book.

 Dr. Sasha Eisenman received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University. He is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture at Temple University.
