Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología Español

The herbarium JACA was founded in 1960 by Prof. P. Montserrat who at that time settled in Jaca to work in the Centro Pirenaico de Biología experimental (former name of the Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología). The oldest herbarium specimens correspond to plants collected in the middle of the XX century, all around the Iberian Peninsula. Nowadays, the majority of the plants stored were collected in the 1970’s and 1980’s, mainly in the Pyrenees.
In the last few years, the herbarium collections have been increased with the plants of several collaborators and more than 100.000 records coming from field observations and literature have been introduced into the databases.
