Nomenclature: The specimens have been identified using modern floras (Lambinon, 1998; Van der Meijden, 1996; Tutin, 1964-1980) and the identifications have been compared with modern herbarium material present in the National Herbarium of the Netherlands, Utrecht University branch (U).
Photographs: Photographs are made using a Nikon D100, using the fixed digital photo-processing unit of the Leiden branch of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands, together with the Nikon Capture software. The camera was generally set at an aperture of f.11 and a shutter speed of 1/800th second with a resolution of 300 dpi. Re-sampling for the website was done using Adobe Photoshop, both for thumbnails and for full web jpeg images, to 72 dpi.
Database search engine: This part of the website relates to BRAHMS, the collection database of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands. All collection data was added to the format of the BRAHMS database of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands. For the moment it is kept as a separate database. Active searching of the total database will become available later in time.
