Herb Thesaurus

English Abstract: 

"This thesaurus functions as a means for indexing articles, photos, and web pages on some of the basic identifying characteristics of herbs. It is designed for the hobbyist or recreational gardener rather than scientist or medical reference. The preferred terminology is that of a home gardener rather than a herbalists or botanists since they are the targeted end-user. (...) This mini-thesaurus contains preferred terms selected based on common usage, and the cross-references are made from the non-preferred terms. Scope notes have been added where necessary. In the hierarchical display, facets appear in bold text, in the alphabetical display preferred terms appear in bold text.
