Institution refers to any institution or organization that owns and manages scientific collections. This includes herbaria, museums, zoos, botanical gardens, biobanks, and others. An institution may contain multiple collections, in which case those should be entered individually under Institutional/Project Collections and linked back to the parent institution.
Due to the integration of several older datasets, and to avoid duplication of InstitutionCode, <IH> has been appended to all Index Herbariorum Herbarium codes.
