The herbarium of the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (B) contains as one of its historical collections the moss herbarium of Bridel. Fortunately, this collection was separated from the main herbarium during the Second World War, and therefore escaped the destruction of the Berlin Botanic Museum in 1943. The Bridel herbarium comprises 1006 folders with more than 3000 moss specimens including many types collected by Bridel, Bruch, Funck, Hornschuch, Humboldt, Pylaie, Schwaegrichen and other bryologists of the early 19th century.
