Welcome to the CU Museum Herbarium's Specimen Database.
Using Herbarium Data to Document Plant Niches in the High Peaks and High Plains of the Southern Rockies - Past, Present, and Future (SoRo)
COLO is the lead institution on the Southern Rocky Mountain TCN. Most of our efforts are going into the development of the Consortium of Southern Rocky Mountain Herbaria Portal ( soroherbaria.org ),
but specimen records are being updated on a regular basis. Our current focus is imaging our remaining North American vascular plants (~30,000 specimens) and transcription of plant specimens
from the Southern Rocky Mountain Region.
Images and georeferences will be added over the course of the project. During this process many of our records will only be represented by skeletal records (basic geography and taxonomy).
Building Digital Collections and Infrastructure for the 21st Century at the University of Colorado Herbarium
Building on previous digitization efforts the Botany Section of the University of Colorado Museum (COLO) will image, georeference and transcribe all of its vascular plants form Colorado.
COLO has now imaged all vascular plants from Colorado. Images are actively being associated with the database.
Georeferencing is ~70% complete for Colorado portion of the vascular plant collection.
All lichens and bryophytes from Colorado have been transcribed.
All records housed at http://cumuseum-archive.colorado.edu/Research/Botany/Databases/search.php are now available here.
