Students

Interested students of Biology or similar faculties can apply to work with the herbarium material in ZA or ZAHO collections in order to complete their laboratory practice course or finish their bachelor or graduation thesis. In either case, working in the herbarium collection implies dealing with plant material, along with the computer work. It generally includes the restoration of plant material already stored in the collection, geocoding of localities in the Flora Croatica Database and digitization (scanning) of such prepared herbarium sheets. Through this practice, students are enabled to learn about the pressing techniques, importance of preserving herbarium collections, restoring old herbarium sheets, geocoding of localities (through working in two databases), producing distributional maps, scanning and processing high resolution images.

Additional information or application is available through the contact form, e-mail addresses of staff members (About us – Staff) or personal visit to: Marulićev trg 20, 2nd floor (Zagreb). In the case of personal visit, it is advisable to arrange the meeting over e-mail.

From 2015 to 2020, altogether 39 students finished their laboratory practice course in our herbarium collections.
