Herbarium and Botanical Museum of the Department of Biology  

herbariumThe herbarium is the fruit of a long chain of events - the opening of the Brera Botanical Gardens in 1774, the foundation of the Regia Scuola di Agricoltura (Royal School of Agriculture) in 1870 and the establishment of the first chair of Plant Pathology in 1901 – that led to the unification of a series of collections, which are today part of the Department of Biosciences.
