Diatom Herbarium at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia
The ANSP Diatom Herbarium database can be searched by taxon, geographical location, collector/donor/source, or catalogue number using either basic or advanced search options. Browsing allows you to explore Herbarium holdings. Please, note that the database is not yet complete: we are still in the process of entering data and georeferencing localities.
The image gallery contains light microscope images of types housed at ANSP: you can either select a taxon from the list or scroll through all available images. In the future we will also make available images of other (non-type) specimens.
The development of this database is supported by the NSF grant DBI-0840406.
Please, address your requests for loans and information to the curator Marina Potapova (firstname.lastname@example.org) and collection manager Jennifer Beals (email@example.com).
