This book deals with 954 medicinal plants in trade across India which are classified into two major categories: Highly traded (178 species) and Not so highly traded (776 species) based on the volume of the trade.


This classification helps to steer the conservation efforts for plants that experience a survival stress due to unsustainable collection. The details such as volume of trade, geographical location and markets in which they are traded should lead to further studies on population of these species and quantification for a holistic understanding.


The compendium is an equally appealing book to all the stakeholders such as AYUSH industries, traders, academia, policy makers, professional botanists and the layman.
