The Capixaba Herbarium (CAP), of the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, was established in 2018 with a central mission to serve as a depository of biological collections of representative plant species from the Caparaó Capixaba region, including the Caparaó National Park, Santa Marta Valley, and Pedra Roxa (Ibitirama). Located in the Departamento de Ciências Florestais e da Madeira, in the city of Jerônimo Monteiro, the CAP collection currently houses 8,292 computerized collections, encompassing all groups of vascular and non-vascular plants. In addition to the flora of the Caparaó Capixaba region, the CAP collection includes plant samples collected in projects conducted by the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo in the State Parks of Forno Grande and Mata das Flores (both in Castelo), Pedra Azul (Domingos Martins), and Cachoeira da Fumaça (Alegre), as well as in the Pacotuba National Forest (Cachoeiro de Itapemirim), Cafundó Private Natural Heritage Reserve
Cachoeiro do Itapemirim), Córrego Grande Biological Reserve (Conceição da Barra), and Serra do Valentim (Iúna). CAP also actively participates in education and extension activities, providing teaching support to undergraduate and graduate courses at the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, as well as other higher education institutions in the southern region of Espírito Santo.
