Preparation of Herbarium

  • To learn plant preservation and preparation of an herbarium,
  • To identify plants on the basis of herbarium specimens,
  • To examine the classification steps and classify the plants using these steps.




Herbarium is a collection of preserved plant specimens mounted on sheets of paper. The plants are usually collected and identified by experts, then pressed and carefully mounted to archival paper in such a way that all major morphological characteristics are visible. The specimens are commonly filed in cases according to families and genera and are available for ready reference.

In this experiment, we are going to prepare a herbarium with different plants and then identify them.
