The herpetology collection in the Peabody’s Division of Vertebrate Zoology is worldwide in scope, with over 23,000 specimens and specimen lots (including larvae) of amphibians (over 300 taxa) and reptiles (more than 1,300 taxa). Holdings include 95 type specimens of 8 taxa in both wet and osteological collections.
The topographic index is a hydrological quantity describing the propensity of the soil at landscape points to become saturated with water as a result of topographic position (i.e. not accounting for other factors such as climate that also affect soil moisture but are accounted for separately). Modern land surface models require a characterisation of the land surface hydrological regime and this parameter allows the use of the TOPMODEL hydrological model to achieve this .This Geographic...
The UF Fish Collection, dating to 1917, contains 214,205 lots and 2,300,803 specimens. Included are representatives of 8,250 species from 400 families. The collection includes 93 primary types and approximately 1,600 lots of secondary types representing 563 species. Also in the collection are 5,825 specimens of disarticulated and articulated skeletons representing 875 species. Especially notable are historic collections of large and important marine fishes as well as rapidly growing collections of freshwater fishes from Southeast...

The vascular plant herbarium at Tromsø Museum. More than 90% of the specimens are from the Norwegian mainland, and of these ~80-85% are from Finnmark, Troms and Nordland. The vascular plant herbarium also contains valuable collections from the other Nordic countries as well as the arctic. The herbarium contains around 7000 specimens from Jan Mayen, arctic Canada, Alaska, Svalbard and Bjørnøya.
The lichen herbarium at the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, consists of a Norwegian herbarium (c. 110,000 specimens), a foreign herbarium (c. 200,000 specimens), a type herbarium (c. 1,100 specimens), and a collection of exsiccatae (c. 5,000 specimens). The herbarium has important collections from Norway, Iceland, the Arctic (especially Greenland, Jan Mayen, Bear Island, Svalbard, and Novaya Zemlya), Macaronesia, and East Africa (especially Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda). The material includes, e.g., the collections...
The vascular plant herbarium is divided into a Nordic Herbarium, including ca. 400 000 specimens, and a General Herbarium, including ca. 200 000 specimens. The Nordic herbarium covers Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Svalbard, Jan Mayen and Bjørnøya, and the General Herbarium covers all other areas of the world. In the Nordic Herbarium collections from western Norway are dominant, and important collectors are T. Lillefosse and J. Naustdal. A larger collection from mountain regions in South...

The mycology herbarium at Tromsø Museum. Around 90% of the specimens are from the Norwegian mainland, and of these around 95% are from Finnmark, Troms and Nordland.
The bryophyte herbarium at Tromsø Museum. This collection is of varying quality. A large part of the large genus Sphagnum from the Trøndelag area, northern Norway and Svalbard has been revised recently. As the herbarium is being digitized, a lot is being done to improve data quality (taxonomic revision) and the quality of the physical specimens themselves (new labels etc).
Bryophytes at the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo. The bryophyte herbarium at the Botanical Museum, the University of Oslo, comprises a Norwegian herbarium (ca. 150,000 specimens, of which ca. 100,000 mosses, ca. 15,000 peat mosses and ca. 35,000 hepatics), a general herbarium (ca. 75,000), a type herbarium with ca. 100 types and a collection of older exsiccata (ca. 5,000 specimens). The herbarium contains important material among others from Norway, the Arctic, Macaronesia and Tristan...
The Entomological collections contain research material of all extant terrestrial and aquatic arthropod groups except crustaceans:Hexapoda, Myriopoda, Tardigrada, Arachnoidea and Cheliceratea. More than 430 000 needle mounted insects have been identified with genus or species names and an additional number identified to family level. Moreover, the collection contains about 42,000 tubes with ethanol-fixed insects identified to genus or species level, and 29,000 slides (mainly aphids and chironomids). Of other terrestrial arthropods we have more than...
The lichen herbarium at Tromsø Museum. This collection saw little activity before the year 2000. Much of the material is older, collected in northern Norway and on arctic islands by J. M. Norman, Bernt Lynge and other botanists working in the latter half of the 1800s and the first half of the 1900s. In many cases, specimens are also available in the lichen herbarium at the Natural History Museum in Oslo. The lichen herbarium also...
Vascular plants at Agder naturmuseum og botanisk hage
This Norwegian and Nordic collection of fungi contains around 15 200 specimens, most of which have been digitized. Most of the material is from Central Norway, but Northern Norway is also well represented.
The collection of Norwegian and Nordic lichen contains around 36 500 specimens.
The algae herbarium contains about 4 500 specimens, mainly from Norway.
Agder Naturmuseum's algae collection
The Fungus Herbarium contains about 16 000 specimens. The majority of the collection data have been recorded (with the exception of inter alia Myxomycetes) and are searchable in the common Norwegian Fungus Database (see below). Jens Stordal’s macro-fungi collections constitute a significant part of the fungus collection in Bergen.
A Coleção de Campylobacter (CCAMP)possui um acervo de extrema importância para a comunidade científica, uma vez que, atualmente, este grupo bacteriano ocupa local de destaque nas linhas de pesquisas de laboratórios em todo o mundo. As espécies termofílicas de Campylobacter são consideradas a maior causa de doença diarreica e/ou disentérica de origem bacteriana nos países industrializados, levando a um intenso monitoramento da campilobacteriose por parte das entidades de vigilância epidemiológica. No Brasil, a presença de...
The scientific collections of Lund Universty Botanical Museum (Herbarium LD) comprise 2.5 million specimens divided into algae & cyanobacteria (102 000), bryophytes (149 000), fungi (63 000), lichens (170 000) and vascular plants (2 000 000). The collections go back to the 18th century and represent more than 250 years of scientific research. Coverage is worldwide with particularly important collections from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Greece, Turkey, North Africa, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Australia.
This audit report presents the findings of the NRC internal audit of the National Research Council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). This program provides Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with innovation support including advisory services, technological assistance and financial assistance through limited cost-shared contributions. NRC-IRAP also collaborates in the development and maintenance of the organizational infrastructure that exists to support innovation in Canada. Expenditures were $132 million in 2006-07.
