Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This book describes 429 of the most commonly used Chinese medicinals. The names of the medicinal materials follow the 2005 Chinese Pharmacopoeia, with additional nomenclature based on domestic and international market research. The medicinals are organized based on the plant part used in medicine, e.g., roots and rhizomes (137), stems and woods (19), barks (15), leaves (17), flowers (24), fruits and seeds (110), whole herbs (42), seaweeds, fungi, resins, and other categorizations (19), as well as animal products (32) and minerals (14). Each medicinal monograph includes the name of the medicinal material (in Chinese, Pinyin, and Pharmaceutical Latin); its origin; its production regions (including the primary distribution regions for wild medicinals); traditional harvesting and post-harvesting details; properties and functions (nature, flavor, and traditional actions); key distinguishing features and traditional quality requirements; decoction pieces; and further notes. Each medicinal includes fine photographic images and illustrations of the raw medicinal materials and decoction pieces. Where magnified, a reference scale is added. Voucher specimens of all of the photographed medicinals are deposited at the Bank of China (Hong Kong) Chinese Medicines Centre at Hong Kong Baptist University. There are additionally photographs of the primary medicinals in their natural environment, and a small number of illustrative images from ancient texts. The index lookups can be done using Pinyin, Latin Pharmaceutical, or Latin binomial searches. All measurements conform to the international standard metric system. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: For centuries, pharmacists and clinicians have relied on the traditional method of macroscopic identification to assess the quality and authenticity of medicinal materials. Macroscopic identification uses the naked senses to assess herbal quality, combining appearance, texture, aroma, and taste with traditional methods of fire and water testing. For the first time, this text brings this specialized discipline of knowledge to English readers using a concise, illustrated format that distills the experience of China's foremost authorities in visually rich, easy-to-understand format. Chinese Medicinal Identification: An Illustrated Approach records 429 commonly used Chinese medicinal materials (including associated medicinals), using the Chinese Pharmacopoeia (2005) combined with domestic and international market investigation as a basis for determining medicinal nomenclature. For each medicinal, details are provided on nomenclature, origin, harvesting and post-harvest handling, functions and properties, macroscopic characteristics, and decoction pieces. The book can be referenced via a Chinese stroke order index, a Pinyin index, and indexes organized by Latin Pharmaceutical names and Latin binomials. This book emphasizes the experience-based differentiation of Chinese medicinal materials, which is a treasure of China's cultural heritage that has been inherited and systematized, combining the technical terms derived from experience in differentiation with a modern scientific perspective. At the same time, the authors draw upon a foundation of years of field research and experiments related to medicinal materials, synthesizing information on trade, literature, and techniques, dissecting each detail. The book visually illustrates the art and science of macroscopic identification of medicinal materials in a way that is easy to learn, easy to remember, and easy to disseminate, supplementing the insufficient state of illustrations in the current literature.
