The objective of this part of the BGBM's WWW information system is the scientific documentation of the history and current content of the herbarium of the Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (B). The presentation's backbone is formed by the text of the publication "The collections of the Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (B) and their history" by P. Hiepko (1987, downloadable). It is continuously updated by the scientific staff of the BGBM and (where possible) the cited bibliographic references will be made available in electronic form. Specimen databases are in preparation (particularly types) and will be linked to the respective part of the systematic section. Comments and contributions from the phytotaxonomic community are appreciated.
