COI has c. 800.000 specimens, organised in separate collections
due to the research priorities over the years. The General
collection retains the original organisation of the herbarium and
is by Dalla Torre’s Genera siphonogamarum of 1900-1907 (Gen.
siphon.). The organisation of the sub-Saharan African plants
emphasises the connections with the British Museum and Kew
following Bentham & Hooker’s Genera plantarum of 1862-1883
(Gen. pl.). The Portuguese plants follow Pereira Coutinho’s Flora
de Portugal (2nd ed., revised by R. T. Palhinha 1939). The
Cryptogams are being organised alphabetically.
