About this book

Introduction

This book continues as volume 7 of a multi-compendium on Edible Medicinal and Non-Medicinal Plants. It covers  plants with edible flowers whose floral parts including the stalk and flower nectar  are eaten as conventional or functional food and may provide a source of food colorant, additive or neutraceuticals. This volume covers  plant species  with edible flowers from families Acanthaceae to Fabaceae in  a tabular form  and  seventy five such species from the families Amaryllidaceae, Apocynaceae, Asclepiadaceae, Asparagaceae, Asteraceae, Balsaminaceae, Begoniaceae, Bignoniaceae, Brassicaceae, Cactaceae, Calophyllaceae, Caprifoliaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Combretaceae, Convolvulaceae, Costaceae, Doryanthaceae and Fabaceae  in detail.  The edible species dealt with in this work include wild and underutilized crops and also common and widely grown ornamentals. To help in identification of the plant and edible parts about 200 coloured illustrations are included.

 

As in the preceeding  six volumes, topics covered include: taxonomy (botanical name and synonyms); common English and vernacular names; origin and distribution; agro-ecological requirements; edible plant parts and uses; plant botany; nutritive, medicinal and pharmacological properties with up-to-date research findings; traditional medicinal uses; other  non-edible uses; and selected/cited  references for further reading. This volume has  separate  indices for scientific and common names; and separate scientific and medical glossaries.
