About "The Vascular Plant Collection at the Herbarium Tubingense"



The Collection


The "Herbarium Tubingense" (acronym TUB) comprises more than 500,000 specimens of plants and fungi from different parts of the world. Among those are more than 8,000 type specimens.

Collecting and archiving plants and fungi in a Herbarium is a tradition for more than 200 years in Tübingen. As early as in the beginning of the 19th century a botanical collection existed, which was a "Naturalienkabinett" hosted in Schloss Hohentübingen. 1837 professor Hugo von Mohl founded Herbarium Tubingense, based on the "Naturalienkabinett". Since 1968/69 the Herbarium Tubingense is located at Morgenstelle. Today, it belongs to the chair of Organismic Botany within the Institute of Evolution and Ecology. The collection is continuously expanded.

Data Project and Service

The data project "The Vascular Plant Collection at the Herbarium Tubingense" was established by Cornelia Dilger-Endrula, Tübingen, in cooperation with the curatorial staff at the Botanische Staatssammlung München, especially with Dr. Hans-Joachim Esser. It uses Diversity Workbench components.

Between 2004 and 2015 data of the "The Vascular Plant Collection at the Herbarium Tubingense" were generated with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, originally via the African Plants Initiative (API), later on via the Global Plants Initiative of JSTOR Plant Sciences. Notices of errors of any kind are much appreciated by the editorial staff. Technical support is provided by the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns, IT Center.
