This publication reviewed approximately 80 years of literature, back
to around 1850, listing 1,112 species in 444 genera of plants among 120
families, used for food by the North American Indians.
This manuscript was transformed into preliminary database
format in May 1993 by Judith duCellier, working in conjunction with
James A. Duke of the National Germplasm Resources Lab (NGRL),
Agricultural Research Service (ARS), USDA. It was subsequently put
into ORACLE, a structured query language (SQL) database by Stephen
Beckstrom-Sternberg, also of NGRL, in September 1993. The latest ACEDB
version was constructed in May 1995 by Stephen Beckstrom-Sternberg,
liberating it from the confines of SQL to a free-form web-browsable
