This Commission was established at the XI OPTIMA Meeting in Belgrade with the aim to establish links between herbaria and coordinate activities.  These activities should follow GBIF standards and include the compilation of information concerning availability of holdings, the presentation of herbarium specimens on the internet and lobbying for the network.   


2007. The Commission was established and the components are Mathez and Schäfer from Montpellier, Montserrat from Barcelona, Vogt from Berlin and Vitek from Wien.
