The University of Florida Herbarium collection contains over 450,000 specimens in the vascular plant and bryophyte and lichen collections. Currently, over 55,000 of these specimens are available on this searchable database. The project was sponsored by a range of institutions, including the United States Department of Agriculture, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and the Florida Center for Library Automation. First-time visitors should use the About the Catalog area to learn more about the functionality and setup of the project. The Search the Catalog area contains ten different fields to facilitate searches, including family, genus, country, state, county, collector, and accession number. Additionally, many of the items have digitized photographs and other visual material attached to their records.
