Herbarium database of the French Institute of Pondicherry (IFP), India.
The Herbarium of French Institute of Pondicherry, popularly known as HIFP was established in 1956 by Pierre Legris, an engineer from the Forestry commission of France. Computer cataloguing of HIFP began in 1998. In 2013, the herbarium database was transferred in to the open source DataManager software and published on the Institute's World Wide Web site with the support of Pl@ntNet project. HIFP houses large number of collections from the Western Ghats, especially for tree species, the other parts of India and also from different parts of the globe, which were received from different herbaria as a gift or on exchange basis. As of January 2013, the herbarium contained over 24,000 specimens belonging to 268 families and 4659 species. New plant specimens are added periodically to the collection by the staff.
