The goals of virtual herbarium are to make specimen data available electronically for use in taxonomy, conservation and biodiversity research projects; to get rid of actual specimen examination by visiting different Herbaria; reduce transportation for identification and to reunite data elements developed from specimens with the catalogue record for specimen.

A scanned photograph of each specimen with information on its taxonomic status, habit, habitat, botanical description, phenology, locality of collection, local name, distribution have been provided.
