The Information on this spreadsheet is, of necessity, very partial at this stage. At present, under the alaphabetical listings tabs below, are listed the institutional herbaria which are either still operating are are believed to be. With some, no contact has been made for more than 10 years and we will do our best to update these. Any information which you can provide about these herbaria would be most welcome. The figures for holdings were provided by the herbaria themselves, often many years ago and are really only indicative of size. Contact herbaria@bsbi.org

The "Transferred" tab lists those herbaria which are now closed, but which transferred their collections to other institutions. A rather reassuringly long list. Where collections have been transferred again the entries are marked with an *. Where unfortunately the instution to which the transfer took place has closed but the herbarium is believed to have been lost the entry is marked with a †.

The "Closed" tab lists those herbaria which the fate of the specimens is not know, presumed destroyed. In practice, some of these will have been transferred but we have not been able to trace the sheets. In some cases the collection probably hardly existed at all (very local natural history societies which only existed for a few years in the 19th century for example). Others were small school teaching collections, disposed of hen botany fell off the end of the curriculum.

The "Status Unknown" tab lists herbaria which may still be open but on which we have had no information for about 15 years or so. Naturally, the contact information should be treated with caution as it is likley to be very out of date! It would be very useful to receive updated information about any of these. Contact herbaria@bsbi'org.
