The library associated with PAL-Gr is focused on floras and revisions world-wide, with emphasis on Mediterranean countries and Mediterranean-climate areas. It also holds Greuter’s reprint collection, all books reviewed by him in the OPTIMA Newsletter, and runs of numerous journals.
In the triennial 2013-2015, the library has grown substantially through purchase and gifts. A list of recently donated books can be seen at OPTIMA’s Web site (http://www.optima-bot.org/herbarium/library.htm), and notices or reviews have been published both on the Web (http://www.optima-bot.org/Rec_publ/) and in recent issues of the OPTIMA Newsletter. As per now, inventorying the library holdings has been completed, and binding is in progress.
