This paper discusses on herbs knowledge from the basic information related herbs to herb researches. Basic information of herbs is refers to overview of herbs through variety of definition based on personal perspective. Currently, a major barrier to our ability to structuring herbs knowledge is various definitions of herbs, difficulty to classify the application of herbal uses and the way to manage the herb research requirement. The purpose of this research is to examine how two different approaches; taxonomy and ontology could be used generally, to provide a standard framework to address this issue. This paper includes illustrations of the problem and overview of the two approaches.
