summary

With ca. 6,000,000 specimens, the herbaria of the Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève (CJB) rank among the most important botanical collections in the world, inherited from a botanical tradition that dates back to the 18th century. It includes plant and fungal specimens from across the world, with special emphasis on the Mediterranean area, Near- and Middle-East, South America and Europe. The general herbarium (G) is the open access part of the collection, whereas several separated herbaria are closed, i.e. excluded from loan (G-DC; G-BOIS; G-BU; Prelinnean collection). In order to improve access to these collections, the CJB has undertaken a digitization programme of herbarium specimens (databasing of the labels and scanning of the specimens). All this information is managed through the Système d'Informations Botanique de Genève (SIBG).
