Database of Kew’s holdings of herbarium specimens of conifers
As an ongoing activity since 1996, Kew’s herbarium specimens have been databased, improving records by georeferencing and taxonomic identification of all specimens in the database.

An Atlas of the World's Conifers project has also resulted, with the help of volunteers, in the completion of a database of conifer specimens in the Herbarium at Kew. All type collections, historically important specimens, and specimens with sufficient label data for georeferencing have been databased. There are currently 9204 specimens from K in the database. This part of the BRAHMS Conifer Database has been transferred to Kew’s HerbCat.
