Ethnobotanical.info is a website dedicated to the dissemination of plant knowledge. It's my belief that the future of humanity lies in cultivating a more intimate communion with the natural world.

During the last few centuries, much of humanity has forgotten how to live with nature. With the advent of the Internet and a growing body of research available to anyone, there is hope that we can regain the knowledge we have lost and harmonize our lives. While there are many great books and websites, much of this information has been broken down into disciplines and spread across multiple sources. My aim with this site has been to bring these sources together for a single, more comprehensive examination of each plant. By analyzing traits of similar species and uses in various parts of the world, it may be possible to rediscover uses for some plant species. This work is far from complete and should not be considered a thorough examination of any plant.
