The Global Plants Initiative (GPI) is an international collaboration aiming to digitise and make available plant type specimens, together with other botanical resources, for scholarly purposes. The GPI network of content providers includes more than 231 partner herbaria representing over 66 countries. The Swedish Museum of Natural History currently runs two projects.
