Etymology[edit]

From Latin herbārium.

Noun[edit]

herbarium ‎(plural herbariums or herbaria)

  1. A collection of dried plants or parts of plants.
    • 1992, Rudolf M. Schuster, The Hepaticae and Anthocerotae of North America: East of the Hundredth Meridian, volume V, page vii
      With fresh material, taxonomic conclusions are leavened by recognition that the material examined reflects the site it occupied; a herbarium packet gives one only a small fraction of the data desirable for sound conclusions. Herbarium material does not, indeed, allow one to extrapolate safely: what you see is what you get []
  2. A building or institution where such a collection is kept.
