This article needs additional citations for verification. (October 2017)
The current Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical databases facilitate plant, chemical, bioactivity, and ethnobotany searches. A large number of plants and their chemical profiles are covered, and data are structured to support browsing and searching in several user-focused ways. For example, users can
- get a list of chemicals and activities for a specific plant of interest, using either its scientific or common name
- download a list of chemicals and their known activities in PDF or spreadsheet form
- find plants with chemicals known for a specific biological activity
- display a list of chemicals with their LD toxicity data
- find plants with potential cancer-preventing activity
- display a list of plants for a given ethnobotanical use
- find out which plants have the highest levels of a specific chemical
References to the supporting scientific publications are provided for each specific result. Also included are links to nutritional databases, plants and cancer treatments and other plant-related databases.
