UCJEPS - University and Jepson Herbaria, University of California, Berkeley (UCJEPS-VASC)

Established in 1895 around a core of preserved plant specimens that were collected by William Brewer on the California Geological Survey of 1860 to 1864, the University Herbarium (UC) includes 2,200,000 specimens from land plants, algae, lichens, and fungi.

Established in 1950 by a bequest from Willis Linn Jepson, the Jepson Herbarium (JEPS) includes over 100,000 vascular plant specimens from California.

UC/JEPS will be publishing a Darwin Core dataset through the Berkeley Natural History Museums IPT in the near future.  When that is setup a link to that dataset will be provided here and be linked to the CCH account in GBIF.  When CAP-TCN is over, the data displayed in CCH2 will be uploaded directly through the Museum IPT.
