Conservation or Environment


The Australian National Herbarium is located on site at the National Botanic Gardens in Canberra. The Herbarium contains the largest collection of plant specimen samples in Australia.


The Australian National Herbarium resulted from the amalgamation of several herbaria managed by the Australian government over the years, including CSIRO herbaria, the Forest Research Institute's Eucalypt and Atherton Rainforest Collection, and the Australian Botanic Gardens Herbarium. Previously known as 'Herbarium Australiense', the CSIRO's core collection was renamed 'Australian National Herbarium' in 1984.
