Felix Schlichtegroll: State of the herbaria collection of the Kiel University Library with the creation of a maintenance concept Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: Unlike the often elaborately crafted book herbaria, single-leaf herbaria are commonly viewed and
treated from a purely scientific point of view. Nowadays DNA analysis of plant material makes them
extremely important. The herbaria are therefore often referred to as a DNA archive. However, the
background of the history of the collection should not be neglected, even for scientifically used
collections, because in addition to the plant documents, the papers, envelopes, labels and folders also
contain important scientific information. Therefore, in addition to the necessary conservation and
restoration aspects, which are important for the maintenance of a single leaf herbaria collection, this
thesis also deals with the condition and damage of the herbarium specimens. The object of this thesis
is the general herbarium of the Botanical Institute of the University of Kiel. The author was able to
collect a lot of data and information in a sample-like condition assessment, which was then
incorporated into a subsequent maintenance concept.
