From the reviews:
"The third volume continues the now-familiar series characteristics of exhaustive research and comprehensive documentation. ... Overall, this is more consistent with the character and organization of the work ... . This addition to the series is highly recommended for academic health sciences libraries, botanical libraries, and larger hospital and public libraries. Collections in support of public health, nutrition, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, and ethnomedicine would also benefit from the inclusion of this title." (Sarah McCord, Medical Reference Services Quarterly, July, 2006)
"Ivan A. Ross has authored volume 3, covering many details of 16 important plant species used around the world in medicinal preparations and/or dietary supplements. This is timely because the use of herbal medicines and nutritional supplements is on the rise. ... a valuable resource and is a critical reference for researchers in phytomedicine, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, herbal medicine, toxicology, and botany. The volume belongs on the shelves of libraries of institutes of pharmacy, medicinal chemistry, and botany." (Govind J. Kapadia, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Vol. 49 (13), June, 2006)
