Korean Ethnobotany Database


The ethnobotany is important in two aspects. The first one concerns the fact that the ethnobotanical plants have been with us for a long time and they have been used for many purposes including medicine. The second one concerns that their effectiveness in many fields has been proved and we can extract useful materials from them. The environmental problems due to a rapid economical development made their population to be decreased continually. So we need to have a systematic plan to conserve them. This research aims at collecting and organizing the data on Korean ethnobotany. Additionally we will input the data to a computer database and construct a web system to make it to be shared by domestic and international researchers.
