Abstract: The Chinese Virtual Herbarium (CVH) is an on-line portal allowing access to herbarium specimen information and other botanical knowledge. CVH is a collaboration among more than 20 major herbaria in China (see list of participating herbaria at the end of this leaflets) with the aim of creating comprehensive and sustainable access to scholarly resources about China’s plant biodiversity. Its long-term goal is the production and maintenance of a comprehensive online database aggregating and linking information that is presently scattered around China, and the world. The database will dramatically improve access to this information for students, scholars, and scientists worldwide, and for public users as well. One of CVH’s initial goals is to encourage Chinese scholars and experts, mainly plant taxonomists, to collect data and organize specimens into botanical databases covering China’s plant species. Once included in CHV, it will be possible to access this information globally. [Information of the supplier]
