This Herbarium is the product of the merge of two collection. The oldest one was the Herbarium SALA founded in 1966 by Professor Bartolomé Casaseca. The second collection was the Herbarium SALAF started by Professor Miguel Ladero. The two Herbaria were merged in the nineties, according to the suggestions of the "Index Herbariorum" Management Board. The collection code SALA was preserved.
The PAMP Herbarium was founded in 1970 by Professor M. Losa España, though Professors J.M. Muñoz Medina and B. Casaseca contributed to the collection sending specimens. The collection is mainly integrated by vascular plants from Navarra province due to PhD Thesis and Msc Thesis made in the zone. The section of briophytes has been increased as well, because of specimens collected in Briology Meetings and exchanges with "Briotheca Hispánica". Nowadays, the researches of the Herbarium are updating and computerizing the collection and increasing its funds.
Department of Organisms and Systems Biology of University of Oviedo brings together the knowledge areas of Botany, Ecology, Physical Anthropology, Plant Physiology, Plant Production and Zoology. This department holds the biodiversity collections (Herbarium FCO, Collection BOS) of the University of Oviedo.
This Herbarium was founded by Blas Lázaro e Ibiza in 1892. Its central nucleus was the Herbarium of the Linneana Matritensis Society that, by proposal of Fausto Garagarza (professor of physical Techniques), was stored in the Faculty of Pharmacy in December of 1892. The collection of plants of P. A. Pourret was included soon. This collection was inherited of the School of Pharmacy of Santiago. To the death of B. Lázaro a structure of 27 closets existed. In those the collections of Marcelo Rivas Mateo, Máximo Laguna y José María Pérez Lara had been stored. Later, the collections of the different professors of the Faculty were included. Among those, the collecions of José Cuatrecasas and Manuel López Figueiras and some collections acquired by this, the herbaria of Touton and Huguet del Villar are remarkable. Salvador Rivas Goday was the responsible for the current location of the collections (100 closets) and of the great increment of those by means of collecting and exchange. José Borja is one of the most important collaborators of Rivas Goday. The MAF was included in the Index Herbariorum in 1993 and it actively participates in the creation of the Association of Herbaria Iberian-macaroneesic (AHIM).
The Departement of Microbiology and Ecology at the University of València is organised in four sections or units: The Microbiology Unit at the Faculty of Biology, the Microbiology Unit at the Faculty of Farmacy, the Microbiology Unit at the Faculty of Medicine, and the Ecology Unit, linked to the Faculty of Biology.
Ornithological collection: The collection of birds is the result of the scientific activity developed by the ornithologists belonging to the EEZA (Dr Antonio Cano Gea and Dr Lorenzo García Rodríguez) from 1964 to present time. This collection is integrated by a total of 1.278 specimens belonging to 54 families, 120 genus and 194 species of birds captured in its biggest part in Almería province and neigbouring areas. Fundamentally they are preserved as skins although a high number of skulls exists. The collection is 100% inventoried and computerized.
The databases contains detailed information on several fungus groups. The information has been revised, and in many time compiled, by expert mycologist(s) working on the monographs for the Flora Mycologica Iberica project (FMI). Thus, the quality and currentness of the information here presented is excellent. Records comprise both collection and observational data. The geographical scope of the dataset is Iberian Peninsula (Continental Portugal and Spain) and Balearic
El Herbario se ubica en la Universidad Pablo de Olavide de Sevilla, una joven institución pública, fundada en 1997, que se ubica en un campus único en las afueras de la ciudad. El herbario fue fundado en 2002 por el actual catedrático de Botánica de la Universidad Pablo de Olavide Modesto Luceño Garcés. Se trata de un pequeño herbario púbico especializado en las familias de angiospermas Ciperáceas (sobre todo del megadiverso género Carex) y Resedáceas, principalmente de Europa, Península Ibérica y cuenca Mediterránea, en concordancia con las principales líneas de investigación del área de Botánica de la Universidad No obstante, alberga también una representación de un amplio espectro de angiospermas de estas y otras muchas partes del mundo. Actualmente sus fondos se componen de unos 10.000 especímenes en pliegos y se encuentra en plena frase de crecimiento e informatización de su colección. Estos pliegos se congelan previamente a su almacenamiento en una estancia aislada con temperatura y humedad controlada y sometida a control periódico de plagas. En esta estancia no hay personal trabajando in situ de manera continuada, lo que facilita la conservación y evita las posibles contaminaciones y el ataque de plagas. Una vez seleccionados los materiales de interés el estudio de los mismos se hace fuera del herbario, en el laboratorio o bien como material en préstamo. El personal del herbario se compone actualmente del Conservador y un técnico a tiempo parcial.
The Herbarium is located at Pablo de Olavide University of Seville, a young public institution, founded in 1997, located on a single campus on the outskirts of the city. The herbarium was founded in 2002 by the current Professor of Botany at Pablo de Olavide Modesto Luceño Garcés. This is a small pubic herbarium specialized in two angiosperm families, Cyperaceae (sedges; especially from the mega-diverse genus Carex) and Resedaceae, coming worldwide but mainly from Europe, Iberian Peninsula and Mediterranean basin, according to the main research lines conducted in the Botany Area of the University. However, it has also a representation of a broad spectrum of angiosperms of these and many other parts of the world. Its funds currently consists of about 10,000 specimens in sheets. Its collection is being steadily increased and computerized. The sheets are previously frozen previously to its storage in an isolated room with controlled temperature and humidity and subjected to periodic pest control. In this room there is no staff working continuously in situ, which facilitates conservation and prevents possible contaminations and pest attacks. Once selected, materials of interest are studied outside the herbarium, in the laboratory or as material requested in loan. The herbarium staff currently consists of the Curator and a technician working part time.
