The HFC herbarium was created in 1978 to assist Embrapa Florestas’s research on sustainable
economic production and ecological restoration. By March 2020 the collection comprised 10,563
exsiccatae on cardboard kept in a climatized room. Angiosperms coming from forests in east Paraná
(mainly the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba) are prevalent in the archive. A significant part of the
collection is made of Eucalyptus samples collected in Australia in the 1980’s.Exsiccatae images are not available.
