AL: Plant Chemistry: Table of Contents
If you can't click on the plant, it's because I haven't written the note yet but am collecting information so as to write the note a.s.a.p. Why do I do this? Because sometimes I come across something so amazing about a plant, that I want people to know, right away, that it's worth looking into that plant.
As always, allergies and sensitivities must be accounted for. If you have a sensitivity to one plant. I suggest that you avoid the family. Or continue with caution under the guidance of a personal medical practitioner.
Scroll down to the bottom for a book list and reviews that I will build as I can eek out the time for it.
Edible Weeds by James a Duke (1992)
I really like him because he doesn't just copy what other people say. Even if someone else says that a plant is toxic, he'll still try it. As a result, he notes that others publish high toxicity and he publishes what happened when he ate it. Of course that would appeal to me, a person who's always creating new experiments to pursue. :)
