Australia’s Virtual Herbarium (AVH) provides access to the plant specimen data held by Australian herbaria, enabling detailled mapping of plant distributions. Last week, the new version of AVH was released. It comes with significant interface improvements, additional querying capabilities and a new design that also works well on small screens and portable devices. Please read the AVH News item for more information.
AVH is an initiative of the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria and pools the collection data of about 7 million specimens from Australia’s major herbaria, data for over 5 mio of these is already available online.
