Flora & Fauna: The Consortium of California Herbaria

"The Consortium of California Herbaria was developed to serve as a gateway to information from California vascular plant specimens that are housed in herbaria throughout the state. The database now includes information from nearly 800,000 specimens, all searchable through a single interface. Originally developed around botanical collections from University of California herbaria, the consortium continues to grow as more collections are added. Currently, eleven collections are accessible through this interface....The data included in this database are a snapshot of the California vascular plant collections at partner institutions. More recent data may be available through the individual herbaria. Some participating herbaria have collections of fungi, lichens, and bryophytes; those specimens are not included here." -- from the website. <>
