Medicinal Plant Database           spreadsheet file (read only)

This extensive medicinal species database (5,693 taxa) has been compiled from 28 compendia and checked against GRIN (Germplasm Resources Information Network) holdings. Of the 5,693 taxa identified, 26% are currently available via GRIN (=1 AVAIL). The list has been correlated to current NPGS (National Plant Germplasm System) accessions for identification of gaps in collection holdings which will help identify priority species for future collection and acquisition efforts. Latest GRIN taxonomy changes were made (9/20/2006).
