The Bergius Herbarium is the Bergius Foundations historical collection. It consists mainly of P.J. Bergius own collection with some additions made by the two first Professor Bergiani, O. Swartz and J.E. Wikström. The last accessions were made in 1856. The Bergius Herbarium includes specimens of angiosperms, gymnosperms, algae, bryophytes, fungi and lichens, including some type specimens. Important collectors are C.P. Thunberg, M. Grubb, D. Rolander, P. Osbeck, C.H. Wänman, C.G. Ekeberg, and O. Swartz. There are some 18000 specimens in the Bergius Herbarium, of which about 7200 are included in the dataset.
Birds in Axel W. Eriksson collection collected in South-Western Africa during 1867-1887. The birds are mainly collected by Axel W. Eriksson himself, but there are a few speciments collected by Charles John Andersson. The area include todays Namibia, Angola, South Africa and Botswana.
The collection contains around 1000 birds. During the time of the collecting, Axel W Eriksson labeled each bird with its Latin name, the color of the bird's eyes, sex, location and date of collection.
The extensive bird collection, of great importance for the founding and the establishment of Vänersborg museum, was donated to the city of Vänersborg in 1883 by Axel Eriksson. It was mounted by the renowned taxu…
The invertebrate type collection at the Swedish Museum of Natural History houses over 8 000 lots of which about 6 600 have been verified (2015). Mollusca constitute about 20% of the type collection. Other well represented groups are Polychaeta, Oligochaeta, Anthozoa, Amphipoda and Echinodermata. The collection houses a large proportion of the type specimens by Ch. Erséus, A. J. Malmgren, A. Warén, O. Carlgren, S. Lovén, S. Boström, U. Jondelius, S. Stöhr, A. V. Ljungman, H. Théel, and S. Bock.

This dataset contains information on 423 registered specimens of the private collection of birds by Otto Hedin currently curated at Kärrboda Gårdsmuseum, Nyköping, Sweden. The dataset was prepared by Kristina Hedin in 2014. The collection contains specimens collected between 1810 and 1915.
The Department of Aquatic Resources (SLU Aqua) at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is responsible of collecting and checking test-fishing data generated in national and regional environmental programs on behalf of the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. The test fishing is performed with standardized methods. SLU Aqua also collect test-fishing data from several other types of investigations (e g recipient monitoring). The purpose is to facilitate obtaining data of high quality for research, national investigations and reports. The database also serves as a reference for local and regional investigations. Data is available for the public on http://www.slu.se/kul.
The invertebrate collections (excluding insects) at the Swedish Museum of Natural History house over 500000 lots in ethanol, dry and on microscope slides. Mollusca constitute more than half of the collections. The geographic scope is worldwide, with a good representation of the Swedish fauna. In 2015, about 30% of the collections have been digitized. Type material is represented in a separate dataset. For further information and contact see http://www.nrm.se/english/researchandcollections/zoology/collections/invertebrates.305_en.html
Standardized test-fishing with Nordic multi-mesh gillnets is a widely used method in Sweden to investigate the fish fauna in a lake. In 2005 the method became an European standard (EN 14757). Standardized test-fishing catch most of the Swedish species in a representative way, giving a good estimate of species abundance and size distribution. The results are generally used for purposes of environmental protection and fishery management.
NORS consists of thousands of test-fishing occasions back to the 1950’s. The Department of Aquatic Resources (SLU Aqua) at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is responsible of collecting and checking test-fishing data generated in national and r…
The dataset is a catalogue of the specimens in Herbarium UME, hosted by the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science (EMG) at Umeå University, Sweden. The dataset currently holds about 50000 bryophytes, 22000 lichens, 15000 fungi, 10000 vascular plants, and some algae. About a third of the collection at the herbarium is currently registered in the database.
Electrofishing is a quantitative method to monitor the fish fauna in running waters, allowing fish to be released back alive. SERS consists of results from over 58 000 electrofishing occasions all over Sweden, as far as back to the 1950’s. The Department of Aquatic Resources (SLU Aqua) at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is responsible of collecting and quality assuring test-fishing data generated in national and regional environmental programs, on behalf of the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. The purpose is to facilitate the access of high quality data for research, national investigations and reports. The database also serves as a reference for local and reg…
