No Abstract Available.
Notes # : This paper was the first analytical account of a San Pedro using an accurate Latin binomial.

Claudine Friedberg, the French ethnobotanist who provided Poisson's analytical material after purchasing live cuttings in a Peruvian witches' market, gave this paper some promotion in the early 1960s when supporting her assertions that mescaline was what was responsible for San Pedro being used by Peruvian shamans. (per K. Trout)
