Find an Institution
Institutions are any entity that owns and manages biological collections. This includes the herbaria registered in Index Herbariorum, natural history collections, zoos, botanical gardens, biobanks, culture collections and others.
Several hundred InstitutionCodes are used by more than one institution, making their meaning ambiguous. Most of these ambiguities involve Herbarium Codes in Index Herbariorum that have also been used by natural history museums (e.g., AMNH is used by the large museum in New York City and the Icelandic National Herbarium). To reduce these ambiguities, <IH> has been appended to all IH Herbarium codes to create distinct InstitutionCodes.
