The University and Jepson Herbaria of the University of California at Berkeley are two collections of pressed plants housed together along with research labs, libraries, and archives. Together the Herbaria hold about 2,200,000 specimens, one of the largest collections in North America.
We led the first biodiversity natural history implementation of CollectionSpace, expanding CollectionSpace to support research-driven interoperability, including the aggregation of content for the Consortium of California Herbaria and the Global Plants initiative.
A gateway to data and images of herbarium specimens of all plant and fungal taxa from all parts of the world held at the University and Jepson Herbaria is available online at https://ucjeps.cspace.berkeley.edu/ucjeps_project/public/publicsearch/.
