Reviews Summary Despite the undoubted success of a scientific approach to pharmaceuticals, the last few decades have witnessed a spectacular rise in interest in herbal medicinal products. This general interest has been followed by increasing scientific and commercial attention that led to the coining of the term ethnopharmacology to describe the scientific discipline investigating the use of these products. Presenting detailed information from all regions of the world, Ethnoveterinary Botanical Medicine provides techniques to evaluate the efficacy of plants used in animal health care and addresses the challenges faced by researchers and practitioners in the field. This book features a multidisciplinary approach to examining the role of herbal medicines in companion and domestic animals and the scientific underpinnings of ethnoveterinary practice. The text also covers matters relating to access benefit sharing, the Convention on Biological Diversity CBD , intellectual property, and the skills required to navigate the minefield of bioprospecting. The editors have collated information not often found in the English literature from China, Southeast Asia, francophone Africa and South America.
His authoritative and often humorous voice emphasizes quality of personal experience over sheer quantity of technical information, and the value of getting to know just a handful of plants reminds us that curanderos only ever call upon a handful of favorite plant allies. He encourages finding these for yourself, before attempting to use bulk supply or herbal supplements in order to avoid inconsistent quality or the dubious commercial practices behind them. This book includes an introduction replete with pearls of herbalist wisdom.
It is predominantly made up of monographs with in-depth profiles and detailed black and white illustrations, as well as corresponding color photo plates in the beginning and some helpful indices at the end.
Descriptions and language are aimed at the general public and tend to avoid botanical terminology unless necessary. He demonstrates consistent integrity in his decision to only include plants whose populations are strong enough to be foraged and in his discouragement of over-harvesting.
His heartening respect for the traditions of native plant healers is reflected in his choosing the names most commonly used in their respective regions, often using native terminology or the Spanish language of curanderos.
A warm and welcoming departure from the sometimes dry, scientific blurbs in standard guides, his guidebooks are truly tailored for herbalist considerations and often read like the guiding voice of a wise and witty grandfather, encouraging you to do right, while still having fun. Thayer too has a wealth of knowledge to share and does so, though a bit rambling at times. Even so, there is useful information in every inch of this book that can come in handy at unexpected times.
He also has side by side photos of plants often confused for one another to aid certainty in identification. Avoiding commonly regurgitated misinformation, his profiles include standard names and information as well as personal anecdotes of his tried and true experience with these plants. Botanists, herbalists, and amateur foragers alike rank this as one of the most useful and thoughtful guide books, successfully covering all bases and providing resources for recurring questions in the field.
Duke and celebrated plant photographer Steven Foster team up to create this handy, though somewhat hefty, pocket sized guide. In a unique, color-coded format, the book is arranged to identify plants by most observable categories, predominantly of flowers by color, as well as trees, shrubs, woody vines and grass-like plants.
The color codes are marked in tabs at the bottom of the page to easily flip to a yellow flower, for example, which would then be subdivided into features such as 5-petaled or compound and so on. Though organized differently than taxonomic style guides, it provides an encyclopedic quantity of information that some may crave when out and searching for an unknown plant.
If you are passively educating yourself at home, the plant and medical topics indices are the easiest way to navigate and look up imagery of plants of interest. This is a mainly scientific voice but has a hint of personality here and there, evidenced in the safety notes of the Cannabis profile, explaining that the shifting legality of the plant in various locations is its biggest safety concern.
If you do best with a scientific, encyclopedic format, this book is a valuable stand by, easy to toss in a backpack and reference when out on a plant walk or to visualize plants you may be studying at home.
How I Use These Books Despite the steadily mounting stack of books taking over my living room, I find that each of these guides has a place, and luckily, not all of them are in my backpack. They all seem to inform one another, but some books make the most sense to consume slowly, at home, while others are the best to pack for a day out in the wild.
Having an encyclopedic list of plants with color photographs to leaf through is the most immediately helpful when you come across an unknown plant of interest. As a newcomer to the field, I wanted to start by looking up everything I came across so this guide is the perfect tool for the job.
Walking through nature with a few of these identifying techniques down pat feels like finally learning the language while traveling in a foreign country. Unreadable signs and symbols previously glossed-over suddenly stand out and make themselves known. Due to the depth of each profile, their catalogues are comparatively thinner than the traditional field guides, so you might not find every plant you come across, and thus, they might not be the guide you need to have on you at all times.
Overall, each style has a benefit and a strength that greatly supplements the strengths of another.
So, I keep my stack and a notebook close at hand when studying each new plant. Looking for more books to support your herbal studies? What will you add to your herbal library next?

Sexual impotence and ED in men is considered a secret affair and the suffering persons keep quite or seek medical help in privacy. The psychologically affected men will try other women to test the viability of their manhood. The same is true, women with spouses with such erectile problems may be tempted to go outside their marriage vows to satisfy their sexual needs.
Only the few elite educated and with money seek modern medical care privately and secretly. The description of impotent men in western Uganda among the Banyankore ethnic grouping is literally translated as the persons having no legs Kifabigyere, Runyankore Dialect to imply that the penis is dead cannot bear children. There are other various terms used to describe such men with sexual impotence and ED like the one trampled by a goat, [Akaribatwa embuzi empene , Kinyankore dialect].
The men who were unable to have children were not supposed to be given the positions of responsibility or leadership because they were regarded as abnormal. Socially these men were excluded from society, even on drinking joints for the local brew or beer, they are not expected to talk and if they talked, they are hushed. Even women and children always taunted the suffering individuals.
Socio-economically, sexual impotence and ED is demeaning and tortures the sufferers by reducing their self-esteem and worthiness in the society. Culturally, in olden days, the impotent men married wives and entrust their wives to very close friends and or relatives to bear them children. Although there are few men who are born absolutely impotent, the number of men with erectile problems are many especially those tending to 50 years and above. ED has profound effect on psychological well being, it can be devastating, it can lead to low self-esteem, depression, negative effect on relationships and reduced life satisfaction Among several other causes, aging is one of the factors leading to ED.
ED is slowly creating adverse problems in homes in Uganda and particularly, among the mid-aged and old men. The men with sexual impotence and erectile dysfunction deserve proper diagnosis of the conditions and treatment.
Thus, the plant remedies described may be healthy if administered Erectile dysfunction is a common problem in men of all ages than publicly perceived. Since, I started the research in reproductive health care; the commonest question asked by men is related with medicinal plants that empower male sexuality.
So far, several males have been consulting on the treatment of ED using herbal remedies, either by themselves or through friends The proved herbal remedies with therapeutic values such as Prunus africana used in the treatment of hypertrophy in male genitalia is indicative that some herbals may be potent though not yet studied comprehensively 5 , However, most of the herbal remedies used in male ailments are not well documented and researched.
The dangers of loosing valuable indigenous knowledge IK on sexual impotence and ED are likely to occur because westernization in the present generation.
This indigenous knowledge in medicine ought to be documented for future use and sustainable utilisation According to the convention on biological diversity CBD 6 , specific reference is made to the need to protect the world's indigenous cultures and traditions Art.
This article points out that national legislation need to respect, preserve and maintain knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous and local communities encompassing traditional life styles relevant for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. UNEP argues nations to have an urgent action to safeguard indigenous cultures and their knowledge.
From the conservation point of view, medicinal plants usage will continue to grow in popularity as people seek ways to support health naturally and gently Yet, there is increasing trend in usage of traditional medicine in developed countries The dramatic increase in herbal remedies usage will continue to rise since WHO has taken on monitoring of all unconventional medicine according to the traditional medicine strategic plan of to Most medicinal plants have proved successful sources or have acted as leads of effective ingredients that today's drug companies often look first to traditional places such as the rain forests, forest animals and traditional healers for clues to guide their drug development efforts.
Furthermore, the harvesting of medicinal plants from the wild places such as the forest reserves, national parks in QEBR is a point of concern whereby no viable mechanisms have been put in place to propagate them. The plant parts harvested especially those of wild medicines such as roots and stem, pose threat to the future survival of natural reservoirs if domestication strategies are not adopted in the near future.
This calls for serious conservation strategies of plant targets in drug development borrowing from the indigenous knowledge of the local people. For instance, medicinal plants documented in this study like Warburgia ugandensis and Cirtopsis articulata used in erectile dysfunction and sexual impotence and ED need to be conserved based on their demand and medicinal value to the people.
In the event of increased biotechnology and the use of modified living organisms in agriculture, health and environment, most people will go for natural products 18 , Furthermore, research in natural products is on the increase in both developed and developing nations to show that there is renewed interest in medicines of natural origin.
The medicinal plants used in male-related conditions will be very significant in the present and future generations. From the researchers point of view, the usage of herbal remedies in managing sexual impotence and erectile dysfunction is useful because of long history of utilisation of some herbs that are perceived as effective.
Thus, the establishment of rapport between modern health workers through collaborative ventures with traditional healers, relevant NGOs like Rukararwe in Bushenyi by having close supervision and monitoring of herbal treatments in such conditions is noble. Ministry of Health through its research wing in traditional medicine the Natural Chemotherapeutics Research Laboratory in Wandegeya has role to play in advocacy of traditional medicine.
In addition, Public-Private Partnership in Health Care Delivery Desk Office in Ministry of Health and distinguished researchers in herbal medicine need to network, collaborate and have policy in place for herbal medicine as an alternative form of health care in Uganda. The traditional herbal medicines, relevant to the needs of ailing Ugandans can be tried out after being licensed by the National Drug Authority. In our view, sexual impotence and erectile dysfunction are real silent conditions affecting Ugandan men.
Additionally, further investigations into the safety and efficacy of these traditional herbal remedies used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and other male-related conditions are recommended in Uganda.
