The ebDB (International Ethnobotany Database) is an open database and web application for researchers to record, organize, archive, and share ethnobotanical data. It is free to use, and accounts are open to anyone. Researchers can choose whether or not to make their data accessible, so not all the data in the ebDB may be visible.

The ebDB was built by Quantum Imagery as a pro bono job, and as a result, the database itself is and will remain free for public use. For security reasons, it is not open source. A paper describing the database is currently in revision.
