Date Issued:
1929
Abstract/Description:
Plants have been used in the practice of medicine and have served as an important source of medicinal preparations for many centuries. In no other State of the Union do we find the large number of plant families with the large representation of genii and species that occur in Florida. Due to the fact that there are ample supplies of several native drugs in this State, the collection of native botanical drugs could be made a profitable industry. The plants receiving the most attention from the standpoint of collection are Saw Palmetto berries, Queen's Root, Deer Tongue and Water Eringo.
