- The sheets are arranged according to a universally accepted system of classification. These specimens, along with their descriptions on herbarium sheets, become a store house or repository for future use .
- The herbarium sheets also carry a label providing information about date and place of collection, English, local and botanical names, family, collector’s name, etc.
