Herbaria are buildings set aside for the preparation and storage of plant specimens used in research by members of the scientific community.

Expanded Description:

Wikipedia defines a herbarium is a collection of preserved plant specimens. These specimens may be whole plants or plant parts: these will usually be in a dried form, mounted on a sheet, but depending upon the material may also be kept in alcohol or other preservative.

The term can also refer to the building where the specimens are stored, or the scientific institute that not only stores but researches these specimens.

A waymark for this category should be a repository for pressed, dried and mounted plant specimens used in scientific research. The herbarium must be an herbarium acknowledged by the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT). For more information on the IAPT see the following: (Link) (Link).

Instructions for Posting a Herbaria Waymark:

The waymark must be included and searchable in the Index Herbariorum. The Index Herbariorum, a joint project of the IAPT and The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), is a detailed directory of the public herbaria of the world and the staff members associated with them.

The herbarium acronym must be included in the waymark name. The name of the waymark may be anything within reason but should relate somehow to the herbarium or the institution to which it is associated. Following the convention below may be beneficial to help others locate the correct herbarium. Example: SBSC - Robert A. Vines Environmental Science Center - Houston, TX.

All of the variables should be completed to the best of your ability. Please complete as many optional variables as possible. These variables will not be considered optional if the information is readily available. A minimum of one photo of the building in which the herbarium is housed will be required. Please also include a photo of any signage that identifies the building name and if it is a herbarium. The more photos that can be posted the better. Suggestions for additional images include posted hours, front door and internal doors if the herbarium is housed in a building with multiple offices.

Coordinates should be taken as close as possible to the building entrance. Coordinates taken from a mapping program, such as Google Earth or Yahoo Maps will not be accepted. Coordinates for parking should be taken at entry point for the parking lot.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

It is requested that the image be taken from a different angle than that shown as the photo for the initial listing. If an image of the waymark is not possible please describe your visit in detail to give the reader a mental image of your visit. Visit only logs will not be accepted.
