I am indebted to Moses Rodriguez, Charles Howe, and Brent Bauer, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, for their support of this project. The help of Holly Johnson, Institute for Ethnomedicine, National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Kalaheo, HI, provided with the NAPRALERT™ database is appreciated. John Riddle, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, has provided great insight into the history of herbal texts. Without the botanical expertise of Timothy Motley, The New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY, this project would never have been possible. Finally, I would like to thank Peter Elkin, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, for his assistance with the Mayo Vocabulary Server.
This work was supported by Mary Kathryn and Michael B. Panitch and the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine Department of Complementary and Integrative Medicine.
