Bryophyta collection

Bryophyta collection

briofitsThe herbarium BCN houses roughly 4,000 bryophyte specimens, mostly coming from the Catalan-speaking territories (Catalans Countries) and especially from the Pyrenees mountains. 
 
The samples, which are dried and pressed, are stored in labelled paper envelopes that are affixed to a herbarium sheet. The sheets are then stored in lined cardboard boxes, organized by mosses and liverworts and divided by genus within these two groups.
 
The scientist who is responsible for this collection is Dr. Isabel Álvaro, of the Department of Evolutionary Biology, Ecology and Environmental Sciences at the University of Barcelona.
 
The collection of bryohpyta is now almost completely computerized and it can be consulted through the herbarium’s database webpage.
