The Type Database of Herbarium Göttingen (GOET)

The Göttingen herbarium contains about 14,000 type specimens, which have been digitized for the jstor Global Plants initiative (see “Digitization of type specimens“). For researchers who have no access to the jstor plants database, we still keep our old type database online, which contains the majority of our type specimens (database entries until 2015) as well as photographs for about one third of the specimens (interactive photographs).
