DATAMAPS SPECIFIC TO THE BOTANICAL, MEDICAL, AND ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE DATA WILL BE CONSTRUCTED. SOME STRUCTURAL FEATURES AND SOFTWARE FROM THE NATURAL PRODUCTS DATABASE NAPRALERT WILL BE INCORPORATED, MAKING THE TWO DATABASES COMPATIBLE. AN AN ELECTRONIC DATA ENTRY SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF DATA ENTRY.
