MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This remarkable book devotes over 800 pages to plant families whose names begin with the first three letters of the Latin alphabet starting with Actinidaceae (kiwi fruit) and ending with Cycadaceae (cycads). ... The author summarizes antioxidant, anticancer, and antimicrobial activities of the plants, along with reports of antivenin, radioprotective, and antiaging properties, some of which are cited in preliminary studies only. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; informed general readers." (S. Hammer, Choice, Vol. 49 (11), July, 2012)
