The plant collections of the Smithsonian Institution began with the acquisition of specimens collected by the United States Exploring Expedition (1838-1842). These formed the foundation of a national herbarium which today numbers 4.8 million historical plant records, placing it among the world's largest and most important. Over 1.2 million specimen records (including over 105,000 type specimens with images) are currently available in the online catalog at the Smithsonian. Integrated to speciesLink are data of specimens collected in South America.
