This book was written in response to the continued interest of Floridians in growing or collecting medicinal plants for possible profit, an interest that is due in part to an awareness of the advantages of Florida's climate. The scope is limited to those plants that are used in medicine in commercial quantities or have potentialities as such. The intent is to furnish sufficient information to enable one to recognize, collect, and prepare plant parts as crude drugs or botanicals.
