Format: Loose Leaf
This global study reveals that hundreds of medicinal plant species, whose naturally-occurring chemicals make up the basis of over 50% of all prescription drugs, are threatened with extinction. Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI), are calling for urgent action to help `secure the future of global healthcare'.
As well as outlining the key trade, livelihood and conservation issues surrounding medicinal plants, this report illustrates the many ways in which botanic gardens can and do contribute to protecting the plants that heal us.
The report highlights the species considered to be most at risk and BGCI is developing new programmes to address the concerns. Partners are invited from all sectors to collaborate in this crucial work.
