KVH (KOPRI Virtual Herbarium)


KOPRI Virtual Herbarium (KVH) is the electronic gateway to the collections of the KOPRI Herbarium. The goals of the KVH are to make specimen data (e.g., specimen images, collecting information, distribution, DNA sequence data, etc.) available electronically for use in biodiversity research projects in Antarctica, the Arctic, and their adjacent continents; to reduce shipping of actual specimens for projects where digital representations will suffice for study; and to reunite data elements (e.g., photographs and drawings, manuscripts, published works, microscopic preparations, DNA sequence data) derived from a specimen with the catalog record for that specimen.

 

The digital collections of the KVH, comprising approximately 2,500 herbarium specimens and 1,000 high-resolution specimen images, are updated weekly for the goal of digitizing all of its 3,500 algal, lichen, moss, and plant specimens.
