AUTHORS: Flannery MA AUTHOR AFFILIATION: Lloyd Library & Museum, Cincinnati, OH. SOURCE: Pharm Hist. 1999;41(2):52-9. SECONDARY SOURCE ID: HMD/99604119 MAIN MESH HEADINGS: Drug Therapy/*HISTORY Medicine, Herbal/*HISTORY *Plants, Medicinal of different systems. At one time, eight eclectic medical colleges existed in this country, the most famous being the Eclectic Medical Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio (see this chapter’s entry for Lloyd Library and Museum). Eclectic practitioners were medical doctors with a strong belief in the use of herbal medicines.

Though plants may have several common names, they usually have only one botanical name. The botanical name is in Latin, is italicized or underlined, and is “binomial,” that is, has two parts: the first name indicates the genus (plural, genera), a group of closely related plants; the second name designates the species, the specific name for the particular type of plant. Botanical names have the distinct advantage of referring to only one plant. For example, the botanical name for the most commonly used species of echinacea is Echinacea purpurea, while two of its common English names are black sampson and coneflower.

It is designed to be a hypertext tour of the garden, though it is only a “partial catalog” and some common herbs will not be found here. Records can be accessed by both common and botanical names. Each entry includes photographs of the plant, plus links to corresponding entries in other databases, such as the Plants Database (see entry in this chapter) and EthnobotDB, an ethnobotany database (see the corresponding entry in Chapter 7). Of particular note is the link to the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) PubMed database, containing MEDLINE citations (see the entry for PubMed in Chapter 13).
