This is a book designed to enhance our appreciation of the medicinal history of Australia's flora, its unique contributions to everyday life, and its extraordinary future potential. The renewed importance of the medical importance of Australian Plants is discussed particularly in relation to the advent of drug-resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. New Eucalypts that can yield higher grade oils, essential oils from the Melaleuca and Leptospermum show excellent therapeutic potential, and the success of Tea Tree oil in the international market is also discussed. Commercial value of resins, gums and tannins is covered.
