By George Macdonald Hocking, Ph.D.
A Dictionary of Natural Products is primarily devoted to an arrangement and explanation of terms relating to natural crude drugs from the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms. This volume presents a detailed compilation, gleaned from hundreds of hours of research of medicinal, pharmaceutical, and related products appearing on the market as raw materials, or occurring in drug stores, folk medical practice, and in chemical manufacturing processes.
A number of these terms have been defined—perhaps for the first time—by a careful direct study of the materials as presented. The Dictionary was designed to meet the special needs of students and practitioners in the health professions, as well as people in related trade and industry. A Dictionary of Natural Products contains over 18,000 entries, making it a truly unequaled resource in the field of pharmacognosy.
