Louis-Marie Herbarium, Université Laval (QFA)

The Louis-Marie Herbarium contains a high quality collection of plants that is adapted to the needs of researchers in the fields of systematics, biogeography, genetics, and molecular ecology. The herbarium places an emphasis on Canada’s arctic-alpine, subarctic, and boreal species. The herbarium is making its collection available to both researchers and students with the creation of an interactive electronic database HERCUL (Herbier catalogué de l'Université Laval). Currently 31% of the herbarium collection (770 000 specimens) are catalogued in the HERCUL database.
