Abstract: The aim of this site is on one hand to facilitate the work of researchers and members of the public who attempt to sort the common names of plants and associate them with their corresponding botanical names. On the other hand this site aims at building the growing number of multilingual and multiscripted resources on the internet with the ultimate goals of improving international communication, improving communication between lay people and scientists and linking people with a common interest in plants, ethnic food and horticulture. We thereby hope to raise the awareness among both academics and lay people of the great world diversity of plants that could be used by people as opposed to the limited range of plants used and commercialised. It is hoped that in time the threats to the bio-diversity of edible plants will become better known and that our site will help those who address this serious world problem.
