Geographic coverage

The CCH provides record data of herbarium specimens collected within the State of California, primarily from California herbaria. Although the geographic boundaries are based on the political boundary of the state, records are curated and displayed based on the geographic subdivisions developed for The Jepson Manual: Vascular Plants of California (2012). The three bioregional provinces of California are the California Floristic Province (CA-FP), the Great Basin Province (GB) and the Desert Province (D). Of the georeferenced records in the CCH, approximately 81% are in CA-FP, 5% in GB, and 14% in D.
