Consortium of Bryophyte Herbaria
- building a Consortium of Bryophytes and Lichens as keystones of cryptobiotic communities -
The Consortium of Bryophyte Herbaria serves as gateway to plant biodiversity data for mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. The aim of the Consortium is to unite bryophyte specimen records from around the world, including personal collections and research observations, and serve as a gateway to distribute these resources to the public. The Consortium began with a focus on North American herbaria. It now welcomes all herbaria to join the Consortium to share specimen records with the international research community via this platform. We currently serve the data through an English and Spanish language interface; a French version is in development.
We offer tools to locate, access and work with a variety of data, including specimen records, field observations, dynamic and static checklists, images, interactive keys, and a taxonomic thesaurus. If you are new to the site, please create an account. Contact us if you are interested in contributing, either as individual user or as a collection manager of an institution that would like to join: BryophyteConsortium@gmail.com. Previously-created accounts in CNABH will continue to function.
