in the making.(1) "I have always found that Roy Upton, the major driver for this work, has a long history of producing botanical monographs and his work and passion for botanicals has been clear, thorough, and accurate, which is exemplified in this textbook of botanical microscopy," he said. "It will soon become the major authority on the microscopic identification of crude botanical ingredients." Professor Farnsworth was one of the world's most well-known and respected medicinal-plant researchers. In addition to his many academic, organizational, and advisory positions, he, along with Dr. Duke, was a co-founder of ABC.
"With the increasing need for accurate, reliable, authoritative information on ensuring proper plant identification as part of the Good Manufacturing Practices requirements for the herb and dietary supplement industry, AHP's microscopy reference book is a monumental contribution to the herb industry, to the natural products and natural medicine research and healthcare communities who research and/or recommend these products, and, eventually, to consumers who use herbal products for their health," said Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of ABC.
Noted author and photographer Steven Foster, chairman of the Board of Trustees of ABC, said, "Roy Upton's excellent reference manual will become a key part of the herb quality control formula for members of industry, researchers, and regulators for decades to come."
Upton, a practicing herbalist since 1981, is the founder, executive director, and editor of the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia. He is also a co-founder, past president, and vice-president of the American Herbalists Guild and serves on the Committee of Revision for the United States Pharmacopeia.
The American Herbal Pharmacopoeia: Botanical Pharmacognosy–Microscopic Characterization of Botanical Medicines retails for $169.95 and is available from AHP at
