The department of Phanerogamic Botany has a large library of scientific literature, books, reprints, and journals. Except for the many reprints, the entire library is databased.

Number of titles

The library comprises ca 33.000 titles (reprints excluded), most of which are floras and various treatments on the systematics and taxonomy of vascular plants (flowering plants, gymnosperms, and pteridophytes).

Who can use the library

The library is mainly used by the departments scientific staff and collection curators, but also by the many visiting researchers. Others may have access to the library after contacts with the department.
