You can only search for scientific names, not vernacular names.
"Species name" is that name under which the specimen is at present filed in the herbarium. This may differ from the currently accepted scientifically name.
In the database, English is used as the standard language for continents and countries. However, everything else is registered in the language of the label.
In list view, the results can be sorted alphabetically by clicking on the headers. If you sort on one field and then press and hold the shift key, you can sort on two or more fields.
Specimens on loan may sometimes be incompletely registered. All specimens in the collections are not yet data registered, and consequently there may be several more specimens in the collections than those found in the database.
Using “Search all fields” you can search in every field of the database. The existing fields are Registration number, Collector, Collection number, collection date, locality, habitat, coordinates, exsiccate, additional information, type status, basionym, determinations, family, continent, country, province, district, and the date when the specimen was registered.
Words are truncated by using
*. For example:
Chrysanth* for Chrysanthemum.
By using Search genus/species you can get an overview of the species present in the herbarium. This may also contain synonym names of taxa now placed in other genera. By clicking "Exclude synonyms" only a list of current names used in the herbarium is presented.
When citing S-herbarium specimens, type the specimen’s unique ”Registration number” as it is displayed on-line at herbarium.nrm.se, that is without any spaces. All specimens should start with “S”. For specimens with Registration numbers not starting with “S”, please add “S-“.
