The digitalization of samples from Herbarium BCN has as its main objective facilitating its consultation and minimizing the risk of loss or deterioration that represents the transfer of the most valuable or most vulnerable specimens. For this reason, the virtual herbarium started with the digitalization of the nomenclatural types. Progressively it was expanded with other groups of special interest, such as the relevant species from the point of view of the conservation, some historical collections or the fruits and seeds collection. Search images by scientific name, location, collectors or collection date. You can also browse the different collections from the links in the following list. If you need the images with a larger resolution you can request it by email. In addition, there is an image service that allows you to obtain the image of any sheet of the herbarium BCN.
