The Herbarium of the State University at Feira de Santana (HUEFS) was founded in 1980 as part of the Department of Biological Sciences. Currently, the herbarium occupies an area of 754,28 m2. Its space is organized into the following sections: Data Processing Center, Material Processing Room, Sheet Mounting Room, Duplicate Storage Room, Record Management Room,  General Collection Housing, and Curation and Administration Office.



The present HUEFS collection numbers more than 175,000 sheets, entered into the database management program (HERBARIUM 2.0) developed by Professor Dr. Luciano Paganucci. It has the largest collection of the Flowering Plants in the Brazilian Northeast, with the type collection close to 850, the bulk of which is formed by Cibachrome type image collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, received through the "Return of Project Data for the Flora of the Northeast" program. The associated with the HUEFS Taxonomy Lab (TAXON) also houses an important spirit collection that originated with such projects as Flora of the Chapada Diamantina (Bahia, Brazil), Legumes of the Caatinga, Flora of the Inselbergs in the Region of Milagres, and Flora of Ponds.



The HERBARIUM database allows for an easy manipulation of the herbarium data, as well as for creating labels and issuing reports, such as checklists for specific geographic areas, listings by families, genera and species, listings by collectors, etc. In addition to daily recording of new collections, frequent updating of the HUEFS data always offers current information on its holdings.



Through its own collecting efforts and collection exchange with other herbaria around the world, including loans, swaps, and donations, the HUEFS holdings have grown in one decade from 50,271 specimens in 2000 to 175,000 specimens as of August of 2011.
