University & Jepson Herbaria New Public Portal AmphibiaWeb
The University & Jepson Herbaria have a new search portal, built using CollectionSpace software, that now includes all taxa (algae, mosses, etc.) and specimens that have been databased outside California. This is 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, University of California, Berkeley. For more California vascular plant records, visit the Consortium of California Herbaria for specimen data from over 30 contributing institutions. For taxonomic treatments and dichotomous keys of California plants, see the Jepson eFlora (for vascular plants), or the California Moss eFlora.
