The detailed content includes a bilingual English-French list with the following tabs for each plant:
- Its characteristics: family, morphological type, habitat, climate zone, production zone, zone of origin;
- Its botanical description; - Its history: its etymology, traditional uses and legends;
- A bibliography;
- An iconography. An index in 7 languages (Latin, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Portuguese) listing all the names of the plants in the Encyclopedia with their synonyms: a function which offers the best precision for research.
More specific information is available, to help professionals find out more about the plant part(s) used (fruit, leaf, flower, seed, bark, etc.), their chemical composition with the hierarchical list of molecules, and possible use in phytotherapy, food and/or cosmetics. The internet Web site is the new generation ‘A.M.I. CD-Rom’ (edited in 1997), which has become the reference tool in many R&D laboratories working on plants.
