ABC's James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature AwardThis year's James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award was given to Aviva Romm, M.D., for her new book Botanical Medicine for Women's Health. The book was published by Churchill Livingstone, an imprint of Elsevier Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri in 2010.

Duke, Ph.D., is given annually to a book or book service that provides a significant contribution to literature in the fields of botany, taxonomy, ethnobotany, phytomedicine, or other disciplines related to the vast field of medicinal plants. Dr. Duke is also a co-founding member of the ABC Board of Trustees.

The book, a blend of traditional and modern scientific data on botanical medicine, contains detailed plant profiles that include principle uses, clinical indications, and safety information on the most commonly used botanicals for women's health(1).

"I was pleased to select it, as appealing to me as it is -- and, I anticipate, to the general herbal reading public. Botanical Medicine for Women's Health is as intellectually well-founded and needed as it is outstanding among its genre. And it is simply good reading," said Dr. Duke. "It has an appropriate mix, to my taste, of folklore and modern and recent scientific evidence. I liked it best of the several others that were close runner-ups."

Firmly rooted in traditional herbalism, Dr. Romm's book contains up-to-date, evidence-based information on over 150 botanicals for over 35 different conditions, including coverage of fertility, menstrual health, and more(1). It includes appendice
