    Special acknowledgement is due to Professors Norman R. Farnsworth, Harry
    H. S. Fong, and Gail B. Mahady of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Traditional
    Medicine, College of Pharmacy, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA,
    for drafting and revising the monographs.
    WHO also acknowledges with thanks the members of the advisory group
    that met in Beijing, China, in 1994, to draw up a list of medicinal plants for
    which monographs should be prepared, the more than 100 experts who provided
    comments and advice on the draft texts, and those who participated in
    the WHO Consultation held in Munich, Germany, in 1996 to review the
    monographs (see Annex). Finally, WHO would like to thank the Food and
    Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the United Nations Industrial
    Development Organization for their contributions and all those who
    submitted comments through the World Self-Medication Industry, a nongovernmental
    organization in official relations with WHO.
