The Canon of Medicine was the reference of medical sciences for many years in western and eastern countries. The second book of this medical encyclopedia is on pharmacology which has a chapter on collection and storage of plant materials. In this work a comparison was done on the Canon of Medicine and modern rules in this area. It seems that Ibn Sina had developed ideas on the condition of plant collection and storage which guaranteed the quality of primary materials. Overall, his rules and modern ones are alike in the most parts.
