The Taquari Valley's Herbarium (TVH) belongs
to the Universitary Centre UNIVATES's Natural
Science Museum. It has over 4000
specimens which has been digitally organized
following the “Angiosperm Phylogeny Group
III” system. It doesn't have any type specie
sample neither any extra colection. The
collected species are predominantely from the
forest composition in which the TVH is located,
the Atlantic Forest. Although it also has a
significantly number of species provided from
the Rio Grande do Sul fields, mainly from the
Pampa Biome. Among the botanic families
registred at the TVH, the Orchidacea is the most
representative of all due to a research that has
been done with this family in the Taquari River
Watershed. Despite the low samples number,
the Herbarium has important regional botanic
collection and it also has, among other aims,
the continuos ampliation and the full computerization of records and herbarium specimens scanning threatened, endemic species and region characteristics of the Herbarium is inserted.
