The collections have high historical and scientific value, and is used as a base for the research at the department, but also by scientists all over the world. Some parts of the collections have been made available via Internet as search databases.

Research at the Department deals with various issues of systematic botany, where the external morphology, internal anatomy and sequences of DNA is used to formulate hypotheses of common ancestry and evolutionary patterns.
