Description:

The Traditional Ecological Knowledge Prior Art Database (TEK*PAD) "is an index and search engine of existing Internet-based, public domain documentation concerning indigenous knowledge and plant species uses." TEK*PAD, a multi-organization collaboration offered through the American Association for the Advancement of Science, provides links to taxonomic data, ethnobotanical information, academic abstracts and articles, and other resources intended to facilitate research on traditional ecological knowledge. The database itself may be searched easily by keywords, plant names, medicinal application, geographical region, or cultural/ ethnic group. The Web site also includes recent news articles and other features, such as the Biopiracy Hot List. Even those not actively involved in ethnobotanical research should find the TEK*PAD Web site worth exploring.
