• 2016
  • The global reported trade in plants for medicinal purposes alone(customs code HS1211, a subset of the custom codes analysed in the International Trade Centre study)was valued at over USD 3.4 billion in 2014 (United Nations 2016). (cites.org)
  • leaf
  • In my talk I will focus on the development of leaf primary vein in the growing leaf primordia of Arabadopsis Thaliana, a plant model system. (syr.edu)
  • The development of leaf primary vein starts with very few cells which also synthesize auxin, a growth hormone that regulates both plant and leaf vascular development. (syr.edu)
  • In close experimental collaboration with a team of plant biologists, we show that the dynamic modulation of cell mechanical properties based on cell auxin concentration can reproduce primary vein pattern, as observed in growing leaf primordia. (syr.edu)
  • species
  • A comprehensive review of each species was not intended but rather a user-friendly guide to quickly find accurate answers to the most obvious questions: Where does this plant originate? (namibiana.de)
  • In order to have as wide a coverage as possible, a summary table of more than 900 species was added, and a few plants have been treated as main species despite a lack of good photographs of flowers or fruits. (namibiana.de)
  • Approximately 60,000 plant species are harvested mainly for medicinal usage in the world. (cites.org)
  • products
  • These harvested medicinal plants are not only a major source for traditional medicine, but are also used as an important raw material for modern medicine, perfume, cosmetic products, etc. (cites.org)
  • World
  • Medicinal Plants of the World is a comprehensive and scientifically accurate guide to the best-known and most important medicinal plants, including those of special commercial or historical interest. (namibiana.de)
  • This compact and colourful book introduces to more than 320 of the best-known medicinal plants of the world and their uses, in a scientifically accurate reference text. (namibiana.de)
  • The regulatory status of each plant is also given, whether it is listed in one or more pharmacopoeias, including the German Commission E monographs, the new ESCOP monographs of the European Community and the World Health Organisation's series of monographs. (namibiana.de)
