Collection Profile for: National Tropical Botanical Garden - Lichen collection (PTBG)

PTBG houses about 5,500 specimens of bryophytes and 1430 lichens primarily from Hawaiʻi, and the broader tropical Pacific region, which includes the Polynesia-Micronesia biodiversity hotspot. 

PTBG has just joined the global bryophyte and lichen TCN together with BISH for providing public data and images all our collections and would like to request access to the global portals for bryophytes and lichens (separate requests being submitted).
