Botanical Authentication Wiki.
To assist the herbal and botanical products industry, the American
Herbal Products Association (AHPA) has developed the AHPA Botanical
Authentication Wiki As part of AHPA's ongoing Botanical
Authentication Program, this new resource contains examples and
techniques that have been successful in authenticating botanical
materials. The site includes more than 120 botanicals, including
botanical microscopy images, high-performance thin-layer chromatography
techniques, organoleptic properties, a discussion of potential
adulterants, and also forms an expandable platform that can easily
introduce other methods as it develops. With input and support from
industry professionals contributing to the site's data, the Wild is
intended to be a source of timely and relevant material on botanicals.
