Virtual Herbarium
<p>The mission to built a virtual herbarium to display the images of Brazilian plants that are housed in foreign herbaria was presented by the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq) to the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden (JBRJ) in December 2010. The objective was to provide capacity to store and display high quality data regarding Brazil’s Flora within a public institution. The initial partners of this initiative are the herbaria <strong>K</strong> (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) and <strong>P</strong> (Muséum national d’histoire naturelle, Paris), whose images are currently added to the ones from the <strong>RB</strong> (JBRJ) herbarium. From 2014 onwards, with the support of <a href="">SiBBr </a>(Sistema de Informação sobre a Biodiversidade Brasileira), other European and American herbaria we included in this initiative, namely: Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin-Dahlem (<strong>B</strong>), Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (<strong>E</strong>), Harvard University (<strong>GH</strong>), Missouri Botanical Garden (<strong>MO</strong>), The New York Botanical Garden (<strong>NY</strong>), Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet (<strong>S</strong>), Smithsonian Institute (<strong>US</strong>), and Naturhistorisches Museum Wien (<strong>W</strong>). </p> <p>In addition to European and American herbaria, Brazilian herbaria have also begun the publication of their images and data in the Reflora Virtual Herbarium in 2014. With the support of <a href="">IFN </a>(National Forest Inventory), SiBBr and the Reflora Programme, numerous herbaria are receiving equipment and training to digitize their plant specimens. The Brazilian herbaria included to date are: Herbário Alexandre Leal Costa (<strong>ALCB</strong>), Herbário da Universidade Federal de Sergipe (<strong>ASE</strong>), Herbário da Universidade Federal do Oeste da Bahia (<strong>BRBA</strong>), Herbário da Embrapa Recursos Genéticos e Biotecnologia (<strong>CEN</strong>), Herbário do Centro de Pesquisas do Cacau (<strong>CEPEC</strong>), Herbário Leopoldo Krieger (<strong>CESJ</strong>), Herbário da Fundação Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul (<strong>CGMS</strong>), Herbário da Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul (<strong>COR</strong>), Herbário Pe.

In this site they will access, rather than physical specimens, high quality images that can be consulted, re-determined and typified, amongst other functionalities. In due course, the curators of the partner institutes will receive periodic and on-demand system reports and will be able to update data in their own collections. This innovative system was launched with images from RB, K and P, available for study and update by a group of over 700 taxonomists that are actively participating of the List of Species of the Brazilian Flora. </p> <p>There are now <span style="color: #008000;"><strong>3567473</strong></span> images of specimens available in the Reflora Virtual Herbarium. Amongst them, <strong><span style="color: #008000;">205301</span></strong> are nomenclatural types and <span style="color: #008000;"><strong>1578771</strong></span> are georeferenced records.If you are a trained taxonomist and would like to collaborate in the Reflora Virtual Herbarium, contact us by e-mail at</p>

Reflora - Virtual Herbarium. Available at: Accessed on

<p>Last week 44,5 thousand imagens of specimens from South America that are part of herbarium B's collection were published at Reflora Virtual Herbarium. Several specimens have only basic informations, and we count on <span id="result_box" class="" lang="en"><span class="">the invaluable help of our taxonomists to transcribe the missing data. In addition, there are images that are part of the same record, but that are not associated in the system and we ask that you use the tool to associate duplicates to also help in improving the published data.</span></span></p>

<p>A new collection has just been imported into the Reflora Virtual Herbarium! The Herbarium of the City of S&atilde;o Paulo - PMSP - added more than 17K new images of the Brazilian Flora, available for consultation and association with names of the Flora do Brasil 2020!!</p>
<p>Nesta quinta, dia 23 de novembro, ser&aacute; realizado um servi&ccedil;o de atualiza&ccedil;&atilde;o do firewall que protege a rede de dados do JBRJ. Esta atividade ser&aacute; realizada entre as 12h e 13h, visando reduzir os impactos sobre as atividades de nossos colaboradores, pois durante sua execu&ccedil;&atilde;o haver&aacute; indisponibilidade de acesso a alguns servi&ccedil;os e sistemas.</p>
