General Collection

The history of the General Collection began with the gift of the Haller filius herbarium in 1823, but it was with the arrival of the Benjamin Delessert herbarium collection in 1869 (300,000 specimens from across the world) that the Botanical Conservatory acquired its true international status. Subsequent collections have enriched the General Collection, whose growth continues by exchanges, gifts and acquisitions, and through the collections of the Institution’s botanists. Amongst the most important collections that are included in the General Herbarium, one might mention:
