About Us

The Botany Department has a herbarium of over 15,000 plants belonging to Algae, Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms, collected by the faculty and students from different parts of India and neighboring countries. The earliest specimens were collected in 1956.

Digitization of the herbarium was initiated during 2014, with the objective of making this collection accessible to a wider group of Botanists.

The Herbarium is now registered at Index Herbariorum with an acronym SPPU (sweetgum.nybg.org )
