Digitization of type specimens

Since the end of 2007, with support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Göttingen University Herbarium is partner of the Global Plants Initiative (GPI), the union of the African Plants Initiative (API) and the Latin American Plants Initiative (LAPI). The aim of this project is to digitize the type material located in the partner herbaria and present a comprehensive online research tool (http://plants.jstor.org/).

The already digitized images of type specimens from GOET can be searched at:
