Herbário da Universidade de Coimbra

Collecting specimens

COI has a large number of specimens of the Portuguese flora, the result of many decades of expeditions organised by the herbarium and the collaboration of the members of the botanical society, the Sociedade Broteriana. The last of a generation of collectors at the herbarium (Arménio Matos) has recently joined the staff. In 2015, the 135th anniversary of the herbarium, the field trips were resumed after three decades of interruption. The objective is to collect species poorly represented or not represented at all in the collection. What better way to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the herbarium!
