dc.description.abstract "Medicinal plants play an important role in the lives of rural people' particularly in remote parts of developing countries with few health facilities. Tropical forests are the source of a large proportion of the world's recognized medicinal plants. It is variously estimated that there are between 200000 and 700000 species of tropical flowering plants. Such a wealth of identified species, which have been in no sense thoroughly investigated, constitutes an enormous potential source of plant-derived chemicals useful to man." en_US
