summary

This resource represents a set of records from Brazil of the collections below:

Flowering Plants - Strong representation of neotropical taxa is credited to the many floristic projects and collection-oriented research programs, an integral part of the department since its inception. Especially rich are holdings in the neotropical families Rubiaceae, Asteraceae, Palmae, Fabaceae, Piperaceae and Solanaceae, primarily due to the work of present or former staff botanists.

Bryophytes and Pteridophytes - The bryophyte collection at The Field Museum is a major resource for bryophyte systematics, particularly for Central and South American, temperate Australasian, North American and European taxa. The collection consists of more than 200,000 specimens, including 127,614 moss and 51,508 hepatic specimens with a total of 2,284 types. Representation from south temperate regions is particularly strong and includes the collections of J. Engel (hepatics), R. M.

Fungi and Lichens - The mycology collection at The Field Museum is a major resource for studies in evolution, systematics, and biodiversity of fungi and lichens and conservation of their habitats. It consists of currently over 200,000 specimens with world-wide coverage and broad taxonomic representation. It is rich in type collections, especially of neotropical taxa and historical types from North America, Europe, and Asia.
