Welcome to the Consortium of North American Bryophyte Herbaria

The Consortium of North American Bryophyte Herbaria (CNABH) was created to serve as a gateway to distributed data resources of interest to the taxonomic and environmental research community in North America. Through a common web interface, we offer tools to locate, access and work with a variety of data, starting with searching databased herbarium records.
News and Events
  • NSF Press Release 11-136 - US National Science Foundation awarded support to a collaboration of herbaria in order to database ca. 2.3 million North American bryophyte and lichen specimens (NSF ADBC 1115116)
  • June 2011 - 822457 occurrence records integrated into data portal
The CNABH data portal is more than just a web site - it is a suite of data access technologies and a distributed network of universities, museums and agencies that provide taxonomic and environmental information. Initially created with financial assistance from the American Bryological and Lichenological Society, the consortium is growing to extend its network to other partners within North America.
