The information has been compiled from data collected directly from Bedouin pastoralists and from interviews with the traditional doctor, Al-Khatib. The book aims to establish a bridge between local habits, beliefs and know-how, and a scientific approach to the management and use of natural resources of the Syrian steppe. A total of 16 plants and one therapeutic animal are included, each with a short description.
