"The data recorded through ethnopharmacological field studies is invaluable as these provide information on wild medicinal plants used by tribals to treat their common and chronic ailments. Gastrointestinal maladies, inflammation, skin infections, and certain viral diseases are likely to be high saliency to indigenous healers, whereas diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular illness are unlikely to be easily diagnosed by indigenous people. This publication provides first-hand information on ethnomedicines of different regions of India sub-continent and West Africa, comprising 33 original contributions by eminent scientists and rescarchers."
