Fieldwork that generated the collections in the database

Expeditions and Personnel
The collections of flowering plants, bryophytes and fungi from the "Plant and Fungal Diversity of western Sichuan and eastern Xizang” expeditions represent the core collections for the Biodiversity of the Hengduan Mountains project. Significant collections from several other expeditions to the Hengduan Shan region and adjacent areas (Gaoligong Shan, E and SE Qinghai and SE Xizang) are included in the project’s database. In addition, extensive historical collections from the region in the Harvard University Herbaria are being databased and georeferenced and will be added to the project's database.
