The Algae iconotheca (KRAM A).
The Algae iconotheca (KRAM A) is a collection that fulfils a role similar to herbals. The collection now includes iconographs for the 10 638 new taxa, with over 407 293 etchings, an alphabetical index of taxa names and a bibliography of over 7037 items. It is the only one of its kind in Poland, the second one in Europe and the third in the world. This unique collection of algae drawings (iconotheca) serves Polish and foreign specialists. "Fritsch Collection of Freshwater Algal Illustrations" in the Institute of Freshwater Ecology, Windermere, UK was a model and an inspiration for the iconotheca in the Institute of Botany in Kraków.
