This article is very much appreciable for making a medicinal plant database of Bangladesh. Now a days, online base database utilities are needless to mention. There are different sorts of users of that kind of database. So, it is important whenever creating such a database. So, it is important whenever creating such kind of database to fulfill the requirement of every sort of end users or at least highest portion of the users.
Yours database is a good one. You organize the data in good manner. It seems very much user friendly. In your database you may give a version name as like as MPB-1, which indicates you will upgrade it time to time. It is more important in a database to give reference especially in medicinal uses but it is totally absent in your`s. In your article you cited marinelli ( 2005), which is not consistent with your reference citation criteria and another one is you cited reference as 10,11,12,1,13,14,15,16,17 it should be 1, 10-17, Overall it is a good article to publish.
