      Eucalyptus, a genus of over 800 species, is a multiproduct crop par excellence. Not only is it grown for timber, pulp and fuelwood, but, as the Aborigines discovered thousands of years ago, it has numerous medicinal and aromatic properties. Since the first commercial distillation of eucalyptus oil 150 years ago, a vast array of eucalyptus-based products has entered the marketplace, mainly for pharmaceutical, fragrance and flavor use.
      Eucalyptus provides an invaluable reference for all those with an interest in Eucalyptus - in academia and industry alike, for researchers as well as producers, processors, importers and end users - but there are also issues discussed and lessons learned that extend to medicinal and aromatic plants.

      Aromatic Plants Book

      About the book:

      Aroma and flavor have been associated with human life since ages. Aromas were believed to impart the therapeutic benefits and have been an essential part of the religious rituals of our civilizations. Interaction of aroma with the human body influences psychology and physiology. In the course of a single day, from morning to night, we use or consume a great variety of aromas. Aromatic plants have been a source of these aromas providing a vast array of fragrances and flavors to most of the necessities of our modern civilization. These aromas are captured from the nature especially in form of essential oils. Essential oils are the volatile aromatic oils, which occur in aromatic plants and obtained by the appropriate procedure of distillation. The nature and composition of the oil should be, as nearly as practicable, unchanged by this intervention. Broadly, essential oils are raw materials of the fragrance & flavor (F&F) industry. They find a wide and varied application in many industries for the scenting and flavoring of consumers finished products. In addition, many of these volatile compounds as well as part of these products contribute directly to our health, happiness and general well being. Modern scientific research has proven that essential oils have remarkable medicinal properties are essential oils and their value added products for the world market and for internal consumption. In view of the ever increasing demands of essential oils and natural volatile compounds, the aromatic plants need to be conserved, developed and utilized in a sustainable manner to harness
      their full benefits, in consonance with the ecological security.

      Figs The Genus Ficus Books

      Approx Price: Rs 2,675 / Piece(s) 
      Figs,Tthe Genus Ficus brings together those histories, ancient and modern, to present an extraordinary profile of an extraordinary plant with an abundance of medical uses and a reputation as both a delicacy and a diet staple in some regions of the world. Several chapters within the book are devoted to intensive study of different parts of the tree: fruits, leaves, bark and stem, roots, and latex. These chapters discuss the Ficus genus as a whole, including the botany of the most important species that have been related to that particular part pharmacologically.

      With a history as ancient as any cultivated fruit, many believe the fig has been with us even longer than the pomegranate. The Ficus constitutes one of the largest and hardiest genera of flowering plants featuring as many as 750 species. Although the extraordinary mutualism between figs and their pollinating wasps has received much attention, the phylogeny of both partners is only beginning to be reconstructed. The fig plant does have a long history of traditional use as a medicine and has been a subject of significant modern research.

      Features:

      • Provides an unprecedented depth and thoroughness of ethnomedical detail in terms of both preparation and utilization of specific remedies
      • Covers the latest pharmacology findings, particularly related to cancer medicine and inflammation
      • Discusses the co-evolution of fig trees with both insects and humans
      • Includes accurate chemical detail and association to the physiological requirements of the trees and explains how this chemistry provides a parallel and complementar
      • Benefit to mammals, specifically man.
