The ‘Medicinal Trees’ compiles information about one hundred tree species that possess substantial medicinal values. It give various local names of species, its distribution, characteristics of plant and traditional therapeutic formulations of its body parts. It mostly chooses such trees that one encounters growing in vicinity–on road sides, in parks, in homestead lands, in waste lands. It endeavours to reinvent medicines into trees that we recognize as fruit trees, timber trees, shade trees, flowering trees and shrubs and even as useless wild growths of waste lands. The ‘Medicinal Trees : Distribution, Characteristics and Traditional Formulations’ attempts to re-invent the traditional therapeutical uses of parts of trees our forefathers had used since time immemorial to cure a hoard of ailments. Through use of roots, bark, leaves, latex, flowers, fruits, and seeds they had perfected a system of medicines that we have almost lost. We know a banyan tree provides excellent shade. Do we know that ‘Banyan leaves cure diarrhoea, nose bleeding, and bubo. Latex cures cracked heels, swollen gums and spermatorrhea. Fruits remove dark spots from facial skins and restore its natural glow and charm. Aerial roots tighten and lift sagging breasts. Bark cures vaginal piles, sprains, burning sensation in body and irregularity of menstruation?’ This publication will serve the interest of medicinal plant lovers, collectors, teachers, medical practitioners, research workers and botantists.
