Carnets botaniques : Can I deposit my herbarium at an institution ? (Tuesday 21 September 2021)
The Société Botanique d'Occitanie published on its website a guide about herbaria: how to collect specimens and register the information (in accordance with regulations), how to prepare them, and how to deposit them at an institution registered in the Index Herbariorum.
