Open access to plant collections via JACQ


The digital database JACQ enables open access to plant collections for research and teaching.

JACQ was started in 2000 at the Department of Botany and Biodiversity Research. In 2004 the NHM Vienna joined the system. The focus was initially on herbaria, since 2014 the plant collections of the Botanical Garden of the University of Vienna have also been recorded.
