"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."
