All plant groups–flowering plants, conifers, ferns, mosses, liverworts, and algae, as well as fungi and lichens --are represented in the Herbarium collection, which is particularly strong in New World specimens. Digitization of all groups is underway, with more than 3.5 million specimens barcoded and 2.5 million specimens imaged.
