Welcome to Herbaria@home, a ground-breaking new approach to digitising and documenting the archives / material of the UK's herbaria. This site provides a web-based method for documenting herbarium sheets - so that they can be seen by anyone with a computer and internet connection. We welcome participation in the project, so please read more about the project and if you would like to help then get involved!
138842 herbarium specimens have been documented so far.
We are currently concentrating efforts on sheets from the South London Botanical Institute.
We welcome new volunteers to document sheets. Please have a go and send feedback if you have any problems.
