The collections of the Herbarium of the Charles University (PRC) are available for scientific observation by all qualified visitors. Requests to borrow specimens will be considered from recognized botanical institutions or departments. Provide the names (including synonyms) under which specimens are likely to be filed. Specify the geographic areas desired for the requested species. Please do not request type specimens unless and until they are necessary for critical analysis. We are able to send you high-resolution photos for those types which are already digitalized. Loans are made for one year unless otherwise stipulated by Herbarium PRC. However, we ask that loans be returned at the earliest opportunity; partial returns are acceptable. An extension of the loan period may be requested through a written request to the Curator. All borrowed specimens should be annotated, using a small determination label (slip).Only with prior approval from the Curator at PRC may material be dissected or removed from any herbarium specimen. Use the standard internationally recognized code ‘PRC’ when citing collections of the Herbarium of the Charles University, Prague. We would appreciate receiving any publication resulting from studies based on our collections.
