Can swallowing a poinsettia leaf kill you? Why do you have to cook taro before you eat it? Is cooking with oleander wood really dangerous? Poisonous Plants of Paradise, a well-researched and generously illustrated guide to potentially harmful plants in Hawai'i, answers these questions and many more in everyday language and in a user-friendly format.

Of value to both medical professionals and the general public, this handbook describes each plant in words and color photos, then identifies the plant's toxins, mechanism of injury, incidence, signs and symptoms, and traditional and modern uses. The authors offer first aid recommendations and discuss advanced medical treatment based on the latest published literature.

Health-care workers, naturalists, hikers, parents, and child-care providers will find Poisonous Plants of Paradise a highly useful and informative reference.
