The Ivo and Marija Horvat Herbarium has been housed in the Department of Botany, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb since 1998; before that date, it was located in various different unsuitable places. This considerable and well preserved collection contains by far the biggest percentage of vascular plants collected in Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, a small part of the former Soviet Union, Italy and Switzerland. As well as specimens from the mentioned countries where I. Horvat (1897 – 1963) himself collected plant material, the floristic material of numerous other collectors from all over the world obtained in exchange, acquisition and as gifts are deposited in the Herbarium. It contains 71,611 sheets, in which the particular plant groups are represented as follows: Algae 7, Fungi 310, Lichens 281, Bryophytes 4,730, Pteridophytes and Spermatophytes 64,829, Greece 976, Finland 196, and Norway 282. Complete numbers of particular plant materials and all taxa are given in this paper in accordance with the original data in the Marija Horvat (1909 – 1994) manuscripts. Some thousands of sheets of different plants collected by I. Horvat are incorporated in the Herbarium Croaticum (ZA) and the total numbers in this material will be known after a complete treatment of ZA and ZAHO collections which are at last in the same institution. Under the existing circumstances the earlier problems concerning inappropriate locations have been eliminated and it is now possible to loan these rich collections to all botanists for investigation. This has very rapidly produced positive results in the publication of scientific papers.
