         herbarium of Slitere National park (SVR) (since 2010)

 Scientific information of Herbarium is used for:

         Taxonomical research of flora of Latvia

         Elaboration of plant protection strategy, plan development for protected nature        teritories, for investigations and management plan development of protected teritories

         Composition of Flora’s and Conspect’s for larger regions

         Monographic elaboration of taxa

         For scientific research of students from Latvian Universities, environmental education in schools, society information about biodiversity and protection of flora of Latvia
