Global Registry of Biodiversity Repositories

GRBio is the first-ever consolidated, comprehensive clearinghouse of information about biological collections in natural history museums, herbaria, and other biorepositories.  This online-registry is a source for authoritative information about collections as well as validated, standardized data such as addresses, contacts, and values for the Darwin Core identifiers for institutions (institutionCode) and collections (collectionCode).  Personal collections can also be registered here, whether they belong to private collectors or are research collections that haven't yet been accessioned into an institutional collection.

Find an institutional or project collection in their registry.
