Dear readers and authors,
I am pleased to bring you volume 7, issue 3 of Pharmacognosy Communications. In this issue we present new research reports examining the pharmacognosy of several important medicinal plants including the antidiabetic effects of a methanolic Memecylon talbotianum leaf extract in a rat model; the growth inhibitory activity of Kunzea flavescens C.T.White & W.D.Francis solvent extractions against a panel of pathogenic bacteria; the potential of Indian Terminalia spp. in the treatment and prevention of yersiniosis; and the growth inhibitory activity of Australian Syzygium spp. extracts against bacteria associated with body odour production. Our regular features are also continued in this issue. The Janus Corner presents short notifications of interest to readers of Pharmacognosy Communications. I encourage all readers to get involved with this section by sending in short notifications of work that may be of interest to your fellow readers, book reviews and letters to the editor. 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. Read more…
