Dr. Alain Touwaide, Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Pharmacognosy Institute (PHCI) and active in PHCI's eCoG Team, has contributed major components to the 6-tome book series, "Cultural History of Plants", which provides a very comprehensive coverage of the topic and took several years or preparation. The "Cultural History of Plants" opus is part of the Cultural Histories Series published by Bloomsbury Cultural History.
