      Collection Description

      The main collection of the Botanical Institute of Barcelona (IBB) includes vascular plants collected for the most part by botanists interested in the flora of the north-eastern Iberian Peninsula. An important fraction was collected by Pius Font i Quer and his colleagues during their long campaigns over the Iberian Peninsula and Morocco. It also includes exsiccatae with European specimens such as Sennen’s Plantes d’Espagne, Flora Exsiccata Austro-Hungarica or Société pour l’Échange des Plantes Vasculaires de l’Europe Occidentale et du Bassin Méditerranéen. The historical herbaria, dated from the 17th to early 20th centuries, are separately preserved from the general herbarium and ordered according to original author. The lichens collection includes the general Lichenoteca and other independent collections that are segregated either because they have historical material or because they come from different particular authors. The fungi collection comprises an estimated number of 3,000 samples. It includes specimens collected by important mycologists such as Romualdo González Fragoso (1862-1928), a pioneer mycologist in the Iberian Peninsula, or Pius Font i Quer. The bryophyte collection includes 7,000 samples that comes from herbarium exchanges with other European institutions like the Finnish liverwort exsiccatae Suomen Maksasammalia and important bryologists like Creu Casas (1913-2007), a pioneer bryologist in Catalonia, and Josep Vives (1931-1993). The algae collection, which is represented by 4,700 specimens, includes specimens collected by Dr. Ramon Margalef (1919-2004), a pioneer researcher in ecology from Catalonia. This collection includes algae, estuarine sediments, biofilm or turf. There are other collections separated from the general herbarium, according to their origin (cultivated or tropical plants) or typology (fruits, seeds tissues or woods).
