Online Herbarium Collection

The herbarium at the U of C (located in the basement of the Biosciences building) houses an extensive collection of preserved plants from Alberta and around the world dating back to the 19th century. We are currently constructing an online database of the specimens to be available on the Canadensys and GBIF repositories. We have our Lycophytes and Monilophytes available at and hope to have more available soon.
