Book Description

This book introduces the first part of a collection of exquisite coloured photographs which illustrate diverse wild medicinal and aromatic plant species in Jordan. It discusses 281 species from 58 families recorded from 400m below sea level (in the Dead Sea and the Jordan valley) to 2000m above sea level (in the North), and from the deserts of al-Azraq and Wadi Rum in the East and the South to the lush, black soils in the North, and along the Jordan River and water channels in the West. Information on species taxonomy and botanical affiliation, chemical constituents, plant parts used in medication, medicinal and pharmacological importance, healing properties and uses in folk medicine is also presented. As such, the book is a valuable resource on diverse wild plant species of different growth habits and habitats used for culinary, health and other purposes.
