Swedish Museum of Natural History, Sweden (SMNH-S) (SMNH-S)

The collections have their origin in the curiosity cabinets of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences from 1739, but have grown over the years by collecting, and by acquisition of scientifically important collections. Today the collections comprise some 3 million specimens, which are divided into three herbaria: The Nordic herbarium keep material from the Nordic countries, but such material can also be found in elsewhere. A page with shortcuts to nordic material can be used to facilitate the search. The Regnellian herbarium keep material from South- and Central America. The General herbarium house the plant material from all other parts of the world.
