Hüsnü Can Başer said, “We have prepared this book with the aim of sharing our knowledge with all pharmacy students. The fact that Phytotherapy, which has been on the agenda in our country as well as all over the world in recent years, is taught as a compulsory course in many faculties, has revealed the necessity of presenting up-to-date information in this field together with Pharmacognosy.
