This volume, one in a series on medicinal plants in Member States of WHO's Western Pacific Region, introduces Mongolian traditional medicine and details the nature and uses of medicinal plants found in the country.

The book focuses on the medicinal plants used most commonly in Mongolia. Each monograph contains color pictures of the plant and a wide array of information—from the scientific and English names of plants to their microscopic characteristics.

While helping record and document traditional medicine practices, this book contributes to the understanding of the value of medicinal plants in Mongolia and increases the evidence base for the safe and efficacious use of herbs in health care.
