Hosted by the Botanical Resource Center at the Fairchild Tropical Garden (FTG), the Virtual Herbarium contains text and photographic data for specimens in the FTG Herbarium. The Virtual Herbarium currently houses "over 30,000 records with photos in the JPEG format and labels as gif images. These records are searchable by family, genus, collector and other fields." In the future, the Virtual Herbarium plans to offer over 100,000 specimens in high resolution format. In addition to the FTG Virtual Herbarium, the site allows users to search the Herbarium of The National Trust of The Cayman Islands, the Dan Austin Convolvulaceae Collection, FTG Herbarium for Palms, and more. This site also links to information about FTG research programs, graduate programs, teaching materials, and archives.
