So honored to have my work featured on the cover of this special box set of Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs.

American Botanical Council's 2018 ABC James A. Duke Botanical Literature Award has been presented to Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs: 50 Years of Research, Volumes I and II (ESPD50). This text, edited by Dennis J. McKenna, PhD, compiles the proceedings from the first ESPD symposium in 1967 and the 50th anniversary symposium in 2017.

This book can be ordered from: Synergetic Press
