Detailed overview:
Linnean herbarium (S-LINN)
Title: Linnean herbarium (S-LINN)
Title abbreviated: S-LINN
Creator: Naturhistorisches Reichsmuseum <Stockholm>
Abstract: The Linnean herbarium at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm comprises some 4000 herbarium specimens, several of which are types formally designated by various experts. The specimens were once distributed by Linnaeus to his disciples and eventually they became part of the collections of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, subsequently the Swedish Museum of Natural History. Linnaeus' main collections are today housed at the The Linnean Society of London. So far, this material has only been available to visiting scientists, and as small black and white microfiche photographs. Images of a number of specimens from the Linnean herbarium in Stockholm are now presented on the museum web-server. It is our ambition that the presentation will eventually include images of all the sheets in this Linnean collection. [Information of the supplier]
