                           HERBAGE V2.0 FOR WINDOWS 
 
Herbage v2.0 for Windows is a botanical database system - an application 
that is specifically designed for keeping track and manipulating very large 
amounts of botanical information. Users can add, modify, sort, search & 
replace, and export a subset of data from the database to the printer as a 
fully-formatted illustrated report. 
 
Every copy of Herbage v2.0 for Windows comes with a library of 
ethnobotanical information, focusing on the medicinal uses of over 2600 
plants: common names, medicinal action, ailments the plant is used to 
treat, indigenous use, mail-order sources, range, habitat, and compounds 
the plant is known to contain. 
 
As the number of Herbage users continues to grow, human plant 
knowledge expands. Herbage data libraries are easily exchanged over the 
Internet, through e-mail and ftp, as easily as any other text-format file. 
Herbage is the tool for anyone who wants to organize botanical information 
of any sort. Users can create their own libraries, and work with multiple 
libraries at one time. The process of adding or removing libraries, which 
are stored as a text file with an ".hl" extension, is very similar to 
opening and closing a document with a word processor.

1. 486 or faster 
 
2. Windows 3.x, 95, or NT 
 
3. 20 megs of free hard disk space
