The Volume XIII of the encyclopaedic work ‘Medicinal Plants of Turkmenistan’ by the President of Turkmenistan became a wonderful gift for the Turkmen people. As well as other volumes, the new book won the hearts of our compatriots. This work describes in detail the medicinal and healing properties, growth, distribution, storage, preparation and use of the plants that are important in the protection of human health.

The book includes 120 species of previously unknown endemic medicinal plants growing in Turkmenistan, which are of great importance in folk medicine. The names of the plants are provided in the Turkmen, Latin, and Russian languages. Their pictures and available information are understandable for scientists and common people.
