Overview

The Orchid Herbarium of Oakes Ames in the Botanical Museum of Harvard University is one of the largest single family herbaria in the world. In developing the herbarium the emphasis from the beginning was on gathering scientific information rather than simply storing dried specimens in a depository. Consequently the collection, consisting of 130,000 sheets, is very rich not only in type specimens but also in records and transcripts of holotypes from institutions throughout the world.

The microfiche edition reproduces the specimens, drawings of floral details, color plates, paintings and descriptions that make this herbarium a unique and indispensable taxonomic tool.
