Creator: Royal Botanic Gardens <Kew, Thames>
Abstract: This site provides access to those specimen records and images available digitally through the Herbarium Catalogue. The Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew houses approximately 7 million specimens, collected from all around the world. Specimens are either pressed and dried or preserved in spirit. Kew is committed to making this important collection more accessible to botanists and others, wherever they may be, for use in their own projects: particularly in biodiversity, conservation, sustainable development and systematics. To this end we are building an electronic Herbarium Catalogue containing images of the specimens and information taken from their collection labels. [Information of the supplier]
