Welcome to TORCH Data Portal

The Texas Oklahoma Regional Consortium of Herbaria (TORCH) was developed to advocate for and to organize approximately 4 million plant specimens across more than 50 herbaria in the two-state region. Learn more about TORCH and its members at torcherbaria.org.

The TORCH data portal provides access to specimen data and associated images from our herbaria to facilitate botanical research for the purpose of conservation, management, and education. This is an open access portal powered by Symbiota (symbiota.org). Our data records are aggregated by iDigBio (idigbio.org; the National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections, funded by the National Science Foundation). New records are made available as specimens are digitized (imaged, databased, and georeferenced) by participating herbaria. If you are interested in assisting with digitization efforts, please contact the appropriate curator or collections manager.
