Dear Readers and Authors
I am pleased to bring you Volume 14, Issue 1 of Pharmacognosy Communications. In this issue, we present a review of the use of Ayuvedic plant Annona reticulta, examining its phytochemistry and pharmacological properties. This issue also presents a review of the ethnobotany, phytochemistry and medicinal properties of Australian native Terminalia spp. Additionally, we present a study evaluating the antibacterial activity of Taraxacum offininale (L.) Weber ex F.H.Wigg root extracts against gastrointestinal bacterial pathogens, and another study reporting on the antibacterial activity of Podocarpus elatus R.Br. leaf extracts against an extended panel of bacteria. Our regular features also continue in this issue. Two more high quality medicinal plant images are also included in this issue and a listing of upcoming conferences and meetings is also included. I encourage any conference organisers who would like to publicise their event to contact me with details so they can be included in future upcoming events sections of this journal. I look forward to bringing you the next issue of Pharmacognosy Communications in 3 months’ time. Keep submitting your quality research manuscripts and reviews and also consider becoming involved/submitting to the other sections (Janus Corner, Medicinal Plant Images etc.) of the journal. On behalf of the editorial board, we look forward to bringing you the next issue of Pharmacognosy Communications in 3 months’ time.
