Using accepted botanic names, International Poisonous Plants Checklist defines the known set of toxic vascular plants.

International Poisonous Plants Checklist:

  • Provides the first comprehensive checklist of poisonous plants based on primary evidence of toxicity
  • Presents standard botanical names and original sources of toxicity for each plant
  • Provides the accepted scientific name, common names, and synonyms
  • Reduces the geographical fragmentation of poisonous plant literature by compiling and verifying regional literature
  • Cross references synonyms and common names with standard botanical names

The author supports toxicity information with references to the primary literature.

Each entry includes:

  • referenced citations supporting the toxicity of the plant
  • symptoms and circumstances of toxic exposure
  • dosage and potency
  • chemical analysis
  • botany
  • pharmacology
  • mechanism and metabolism
  • control

International Poisonous Plants Checklist compiles and verifies the known data on toxic vascular plants from around the world.

Contents

The checklist is organized alphabetically with two types of entries.

The main entry documents the toxic plants themselves and a secondary entry lists selected synonyms and common names cross-referenced to the main entries.
