It incorporates 7263 botanical names of Indian medicinal plants and these botanical names have been correlated to more than 1,50,000 vernacular names in ten different languages of India. It also includes > 5000 authentic images of Indian medicinal plants duly linked to the specific botanical entities.
The medicinal plant species included in the database have been compiled and arranged under the six Indian Systems of Medicine namely Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Homeopathy, Sowa-Rigpa and Folk.
Thus inventory of medicinal plants, used in each of these systems of medicine, has been compiled and incorporated into the database for electronic search. Within each system of medicine one can browse the data for a specific botanical name or vernacular name.
