Royal BC Museum - Herbarium (V)

Project name: Trinational Monarch Knowledge Network

Dataset summary : The Royal BC Museum herbarium (V) houses 218,000 vascular plants specimens, most of which (>90%) were collected within the limits of the province of British Columbia. Specimens from adjacent jurisdictions such as the Yukon, Alberta, Washington and Alaska make up a smaller part of our collection (<10%). Our earliest specimens were collected in the 1890's and during the first part of the 20th century by James R. Anderson and John Macoun. A recent focus of our collections is on the flora of alpine habitats in northern BC.
