Many Herbaria were established throughout Europe in the s, during the age of exploration when botanical gardens could no longer keep living collections of all the known species and thus preserving and storing specimens became common practice.

Herbarium, collection of dried plant specimens mounted on sheets of paper. The plants are usually collected in situ (e.g., where they were growing in nature), identified by experts, pressed, and then carefully mounted to archival paper in such a way that all major morphological characteristics are visible (i.e., both sides of the leaves and the floral structures).
