The curator of the Moscow University Herbarium.

I am also the head of the Moscow Digital Herbarium Initiative ( We published here scans of ca. 1,043,000 herbarium specimens preserved in the Moscow University Herbarium (MW) and Main Botanical Garden of the Russian Academy of Sciences (MHA). As of November 2019, labels of 335,000 specimens are fully captured and 482,000 specimens are georeferenced. The dataset which is also available in GBIF ( is the largest online biodiversity database in Russia.

Information System "Flora of Moscow" ( was launched recently as a pilot regional project. To promote floristic field recording across Russia we created iNat project for automatic selection of research-grade plant observations across the country. Stay tuned!
