Book excerpt: Acknowledgements: In 2005, I was sent in an official capacity to the Arava Institute of Environmental Studies in Kibbutz Ketura, Israel, to conduct research for a short period on how to conserve medicinal plants through cultivation. A project was funded by Dr. Sarah Sallon, Director, the Louis L. Borick Natural Medicine Research Center, Hadassah Medical Organization, Jerusalem, Israel. With the assistance of Dr. Elaine M. Solowey, who is a horticulturalist at the Institute, I drafted a list of endangered medicinal plants based on guidelines given by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, 2000 ) and TRAFFIC India (Trade Records Analysis of Flora and Fauna in Commerce, 2000), with supplementary criteria drawn from Tibetan medicine. I started writing and collecting data on the propagation and cultivation of each medicinal plant based on these guidelines and Dr. Solowey’s advice. Due to other pressing official projects, however, this work remained on hold for some years. From 2013, I began to work on the project in earnest and started to writing and collecting data on the propagation and cultivation of each of the selected medicinal plants. This book on endangered medicinal plant cultivation is supposed to be an experimental, trial field guide for the propagation of these species. It is intended for ethno-botanists, environmentalists, herbalists, horticulturists, and practitioners who are interested in creating medicinal plant gardens both in urban and rural areas. The guidelines are mainly based on traditional knowledge, my personal experience and observations and practical experiments performed in the field. The book, “Cultivation and Conservation of Endangered Medicinal Plants {Tibetan Medicinal Plants for Health}” is the first of its kind. A few errors must certainly have crept in, for which I am solely responsible. I would be most grateful to anyone who would be kind enough to point these out, for the improvement of future projects and editions. I would like to give my sincere thanks to the administration of Men-Tsee-Khang for facilitating support for this important project and its successful completion. Special thanks to director of the Men-Tsee-Khang, Mr. Tsering Tashi Phuri, for his encouragement and invaluable support for the project. Dr. Tsewang Tamdin, visiting physician to His Holiness the Dalai Lama for his kind suggestions. My thanks too, to Dr. Tsering Norbu for his kind helpful suggestions. I would like to deeply thank Mrs. Anne for going through and proof-reading the manuscript and for her helpful suggestions, Mr. Gautam Verma, who refined the language, and Mr. Jan van der Valk (John), University of Kent UK. and Mr. Ben Joffe, University of Colorado Boulder, USA for their editorial help and constructive suggestions during their short stay in Dharamsala. I also thank my colleagues in Men-Tsee-Khang for their kind help and support: Ms. Tenzin Kunsang and Mr. Tsering Paljor of computer section, Dr. Norchung and Mrs. Lhamo Kyizom of Doc & Publication Department. I am also thankful to Mr. Ngachung and Ms.Tenzin Kunsang for their helping in designing book and computer setting.
