What is the optimal temperature and its ranges for drying herbs like basil, mint and parsley? And can sunlight spoil those herbs?

Specific temperatures for various roots, barks, and leaf products are listed in a large table in my book "The Potential Of Herbs As A Cash Crop." See Dehydration chapter for specifics on each crop. The book is available from Richters.
