Guidelines on the conservation of medicinal plants

Complete Title: 
Guidelines on the conservation of medicinal plants
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Eighty per cent of the world's population depends on traditional medicine for its primary health care needs, a system of medicine in which most of the drugs and cures used come from plants. Yet many of the plant involved are increasingly threatened. These Guidelines outline in clear steps the tasks that need to be done to conserve them. Of interest primarily to nature conservationists and health policy-makers, but also to ethnobiologists, ecologists, agronomists and pharmocologists.
