Allan Herbarium

Provided by Landcare Research Landcare Research logo

The Allan Herbarium's function is to collect and record the flora of New Zealand, and to make this information readily available to researchers, and regional and national authorities. The collections are used by systematists to identify species accurately and to undertake morphological studies, by ecologists to determine historical distributions of species, by Biosecurity Officers to identify weeds, and by the general public (including botanical groups) for various information on plants in New Zealand.
