Pharmacognosy and phytochemistry-II for B.Pharm V Semester students studies about a huge rise in the use of phytopharmaceuticals and herbal medicines in recent years, especially in western countries. Traditional medicine, which uses many plant remedies, remains an important (and in some cases, the only) form of treatment in many developing countries, but it is now used increasingly worldwide.

This book defines all knowledge for pharmacognosy to students.
