These correspond, in general, to a reference work, after which the collection is organized in an order that is unchangeable. The specimens in these collections are never loaned.
G-DC (the de Candolle herbarium): this herbarium includes the materials used in the compilation of the Prodrome and for the “Monographiae Phanerogamarium” (the other collection within the herbarium of de Candolle have been incorporated into the General Herbarium (G)).
G-BOIS (“Flora Orientalis”): this herbarium was reconstituted during the 1960’s on the basis of materials cited in “Flora Orientalis” (the other collections in the Boissier collection have also been incorporated into the General Herbarium (G)).
G-BU (the Burnat herbarium) is made up of the “Herbier des Alpes maritimes”, an herbarium of European plants (containing the series collected by John Briquet and used for his Prodrome de la Flore Corse) and the herbarium of Thuret.
G-PREL (the Pre-Linnaean collection): Collection of both the Burman Father & Sons and Houttuyn herbaria, extracted from the General Herbarium since 1992. It comprises around 30,000 ancient specimens and is composed of collections of the 1700’s and 1800’s, originating from India, Ceylon, the Cape of Good Hope and the West Indies, amongst other locations.
