Type Specimens


The Herbarium contains thousands of type specimens which form an exceptionally large proportion of the collection. For this reason, there is, as yet, no on-line catalogue to this material.

Funding from the Mellon Foundation has enabled all type specimens and many others of historical interest to be imaged and a database to them created – see Imaging.
