This virtual catalog brings together all the autographical identification cards of botanists published in the journal Candollea from 1972 to 1979.
A central resource to facilitate access to samples of the handwriting of important botanical collectors.
The collection is of Botanists, Collectors, those who have aided Botanical work, those for whom plants have been named, and some entomologists; since entomology and botany are often so closely connected in investigations.

Other Resources

This site was created by the Global Plants Initiative (GPI) team at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to support the digitisation of herbarium specimens. Here we aim to compile resources about collectors, identify their signatures and locate unusual or historical localities.
This site provides links to on-line UK herbarium resources and contains lots of useful information. There are on-line gazetteers, a handwriting query page, systematic look-up lists (e.g. Kent's List of Vascular Plants of the British Isles) and a collaborative database which ultimately aims to combine the data from all UK and Irish herbaria.
Over 175,000 scientific research articles and more than 20,000 paintings, photographs, drawings, and other images.
