About This Website

Current research in ethnomedicine & ethnobotany.

How to Use This Site

EthnomedicineWatch is one of two websites that I maintain to provide information relevant to health care. The other site, OncologyWatch, provides information on peer-reviewed journal articles and current clinical trials, indexed by cancer type.

PubMed, the archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature maintained by the US National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine, is essential to both sites.

The epistemological method for my websites derives from "As We May Think," a 1945 Atlantic Monthly essay by Vannevar Bush, President Roosevelt's science adviser during World War II. Bush's vision led to the development of the hyperlink and the World Wide Web.

To make full use of my websites, you may also want to follow my blog posts and Twitter feed as I work to integrate these resources into a broad-based platform in support of sustainable economies, environmental stewardship, and promotion of human health and creativity.
