Handbook of Poisonous and Injurious Plants, 2nd. Edition
by Lewis Nelson
Edition: 2nd., 2007
The second edition of this book is created to assist the clinician in the initial response to the needs of a child or adult exposed to a poisonous or injurious plant. It lists common plants that might lead to the development of the symptom complex and describes the mechanisms of action of the implicated toxin, additional clinical manifestations, and specific therapeutics for each presentation. It has methodically enhanced the previous editionís botanical rigor with insights from both pharmacognosy and clinical medicine to make it a truly comprehensive source for anyone who has an interest in plants.
