Industry Reviews

"Exhibits . . . deeply researched scholarship needed to potentially fill the role of a desk reference for this topic. Pullaiah et al. should be praised for their ambition. . . . Very nicely (and in great detail) convey(s) the unique and rich ethnobotanical milieu of Eastern Ghats and Deccan. . . . This volume excels where it needs to-it delivers loads of detailed and organized information on human-plant relationships of all kinds (including medicine, food, fibers, and other interfaces). . . Valuable ethnobotanical information."
