The Consortium of California Herbaria (CCH) has its roots in the California Digital Library (CDL)

By Staci Markos, UCB Jepson Herbaria (smarkos@berkeley.edu)

All over the world, dried plant collections are maintained in herbaria. Collections from California date from the early 1800s to the present. Each plant specimen is mounted on a sheet of acid-free paper along with a label that details where and when the plant was collected, who collected it, and other site-specific information. Botanical specimens are an irreplaceable, tangible record of biodiversity at a particular time and place.
