The Herbarium Catalogue
This search page gives you access to the herbarium's catalogue.
The herbarium contains approximately 3,000,000 specimens of which 2,500,000 are vascular plants. Not all of the collection has been catalogued and currently there are about 250,000 specimens in this catalogue. Nevertheless, the cataloguing of important type specimens has been prioritised so that the catalogue contains details of the most valuable material.
- The search is case insensitive.
- Wildcards can be added to the search using the % symbol. So that if you just enter the search term "%acer%" you may receive details of species such as Rhytisma acerinum, Tetracera alnifolia and Acer platanoides. However, searching with wild cards is much slower.
