History and Introduction
Herbarium of the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUMH) was established in 1981, with the aim of studying the flora of Khorassan. In 1991, it was upgraded to a Botany Research Department after a decade of activity. In 2000, due to the research objectives of the University, the plan of developing the department into a Research Center for Plant Sciences was approved and the Research Center preceded its activities as an independent unit with three research departments namely Botany, Legumes and Ornamental Plants. Eventually, the establishment of a Research Center for Plant Sciences was approved in February 2005.

This Center has a close collaboration on research and training with several institutes and organizations such as Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Environment, Iran Meteorological Organization, Science and Technology Parks, Faculties of Sciences, Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources of FUM, Medical University of Mashhad, Islamic Azad University, Tehran University, Tarbiat Moallem and Payame Noor Universities, University of Applied Science and Technology, Iranian Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research (Jehad Daneshgahi), Ministry of Education and some other private companies.
