The most commonly used agents in the clinic are included and accompanied by photography of the live herbs, the live animals or the raw form of the minerals. This should facilitate identification in the field and provide guidance for their appropriate collection and preparation anywhere. Some of the photographs were taken by Dr. Gastón at the herbarium of the First Hospital of Heilongjiang .
