All Colorado vascular and cryptogam specimens have been imaged and entered into the database. Images for North American vascular plants are captured for 18 families under the Tri-Trophic TCN. North American lichen packets have been imaged and transcribed http://lichenportal.org/portal. All North American bryophyte packets have been imaged and all Colorado specimens have been transcribed and are available at http://bryophyteportal.org/portal. 140,000 vascular plant specimens and 55,000 bryophytes and 47,000 lichens from outside of North America have not been digitized.
