Culture collection

The size of the collection is currently very limited due to resource constraints. A detailed inventory of the collection will be provided shortly. For quality control and registration purposes the SANPCC is maintained as part of the internationally registered University of the Western Cape herbarium. It is listed in the Index Herbariorum http://sweetgum.nybg.org/science/ih under the acronym UWC.
