One of CCBER's primary goals is to make accessible our biological specimen collections for research, teaching, analysis, and outreach. We are currently working to database all of our specimens and share those data broadly.
- Botanical, vertebrate, algal and plant anatomical collections have been added to our in-house Specify database so far and over 55,000 specimens are searchable through our Specify 6 web portal.
- Invertebrate specimens and observations from our area are searchable through the University of California Collection Network
- Algae specimens are available through the Macroalgal Herbarium Portal
- Lichen specimens are available through the Consortium of North America Lichen Herbaria
