Database, desktop and web application software development for Plant Diversity research.

Research Description

Currently focussed on BRAHMS v8 and BRAHMS online development.

BRAHMS (Botanical Research And Herbarium Management System) is used by research institutions globally supporting collection management in herbaria, botanic gardens and seed banks; taxonomic study; botanical survey; diversity analysis; and further categories of botanical and ecological research.

BRAHMS online allows you to design websites and manage your data and images online for curation and/or research use. Websites can be created for herbaria; botanic gardens; seed banks; taxonomic groups; geographic areas; images, paintings and illustrations; or any combination of these. Specialist websites can also be created. Examples are websites for historical collections or all collections of a particular collector.

The BRAHMS project is part of the Plant Diversity Research group at Oxford.
