Botanicals have become widely used in many beauty products and for the purpose of aromatherapy. Phytochemistry-the chemistry of plants, plant processes, and plant products-is of great interest to those involved with both the medicinal and cosmetic properties of botanicals. Botanicals: A Phytocosmetic Desk Reference is the first reference to approach this popularly treated topic from a scientific point of view. It offers a clear, organized approach to plant constituents, properties, and cosmetic applications and covers the most common folkloric use of botanicals. By providing an overview of the most important botanicals in use today, this reference will be of great use to phytochemists, cosmetic chemists, herbalists, and aromatherapists. Topics include:

Homegardens are integrated tree crop animal production systems, often in small parcels of land surrounding homesteads, and primarily found in tropical environments. These agroforestry systems, developed and nurtured by farmers through generations of innovation and experiment, are often cited as the epitome of sustainability, yet have been long neglected by the scientific community. Today, however, these age-old systems are receiving increasing attention owing to their perceived potential to mitigate environmental problems such as loss of biodiversity and rising levels of atmospheric CO2, while providing significant economic gains, as well as food and nutritional security to their owners.

This multi-authored volume contains peer-reviewed chapters from the world s leading researchers and professionals in this topic. It summarizes the current state of knowledge on homegarden systems, with a view to using this knowledge as a basis for improving both homegardens and other similar multistrata agroforestry systems. The book is unique in its exclusive and global coverage of the subject, and constitutes a valuable reference material for students and researchers in the field of agroforestry.
