National Botanic Garden Belgium - Myxomycetes

A project which linked and extented five ongoing initiatives (Herbaria BR, M, MA, LE & UARK) to database myxomycete collections to create a global virtual herbarium using these databases via the GBIF network with an estimated total of 90,000 specimens, containing almost one third of all types. This joint virtual herbarium enables taxonomists to access sufficiently large series of specimens. For BR all the data of the Herbarium of Mrs Nannenga Bremekamp was made accessible, also the collections of Dr J. Rammeloo and other important collections were put on the web. In total 22.857 records are made accessible, of which 11.583 records with geographical coordinates.
