Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Garden flowers, ornamental shrubs, and houseplants - as well as common species in the wild - can all contain substances poisonous to humans or animals. In fact, after medicines and household chemicals, toxic plants rank third in causes of calls to poison control hotlines. Non-native plants, both temperate and tropical, can be found in many domestic environments. This volume identifies potentially dangerous plants, giving comprehensive information on their distribution, kind and degree of toxicity, symptoms of their poisoning, and suggested treatment. Illustrations, both actual scale and enlarged representations of recognizable features, make each plant identifiable. Separate sections discuss the significant toxins found in plants, and the problems they cause, list plants of special concern to veterinarians, and present identification tables for berries and leaves. The second edition contains more than 50 per cent new text and illustrative material, with special attention to North America. This practical reference, with updated glossary, index, and bibliography will be valued by a wide range of medical, veterinary, pharmacological, and botanical professionals for years to come.

Synopsis :

Many garden flowers, decorative trees, house plants and wild plants contain substances which can lead to poisoning in man or animals. Next to medicines and household chemicals, plants or parts of plants occupy third place in the statistics of Poison Information Centres relating to children. Plants from all over the world are found in most domestic environments. The majority covered in this book originate in temperate zones, and the text comprehensively identifies potentially dangerous plants, their distribution, level of toxicity, symptoms of poisoning and suggested treatment. Illustrations range from actual size color and black/white photos to enlarged representations of microscopically recognizable features in fruits and leaves.

The first edition of Poisonous Plants was extremely well received, praised for its combination of wide coverage, ease of use and superb color illustrations. The second edition is a complete revision, and contains over 50% additional text and illustrative material, with special attention to North America. The new edition of this practical reference work has proved invaluable to a wide range of professional groups.

Critique: "Beautifully presented ... structural formulae abound and there is a clearly marked section on treatment of poisoning for each plant ... a pleasure to review." Nature

"Apart from its scientific authority and usefulness, it is entertaining reading for anyone interested in plants, gardening or with a desire to learn about the unusual." Growth
