Traditional medicinal plants of Saudi Arabia.
Department of Pharmacognosy, College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The work gives an account of the use of twenty plant species in Saudi traditional medicine and their main chemical constituents. The botanical name, local name or names (in Arabic language), family, mode of administration and voucher herbarium numbers are recorded. Such a study is not only to document the current status of traditional uses of medicinal plants in Saudi Arabia, but also to give awareness of possible new drug resources.
