Elizabeth A. Dauncey is a freelance plant toxicologist and the author of Poisonous Plants: A Guide for Parents and Childcare Providers. Sonny Larsson is a licensed pharmacist at the Swedish Poisons Information Centre.


"[Plants That Kill] will appeal to everyone interested in plants, from the amateur gardener to the professional botanist."---Barbara Paul Robinson, Wall Street Journal

"Elizabeth Dauncey and Sonny Larsson have provided the world with a book that is detailed and comprehensive in the information it supplies while, at the same time, is a model of simplicity in its outlay and in allowing the reader to find quickly the particular piece of information being sought. It has been a long time since I was as impressed as I am by Plants that Kill."---Ian Lipke, Queensland Reviewers Collective
