DiversityExsiccatae is an application component of the database framework Diversity Workbench. It might be installed as part of a DWB environment, but also be used as a stand-alone application, e. g., in a local installation. Each DWB module is devoted to a specific data domain.

Exsiccatae are series of specimen collections which are distributed as a publication and are usually available in multiple copies world-wide (see also IndExs - Index of Exsiccatae, About). A standard list for Exsiccatae is believed to increase the efficiency of the digitization of botanical collections. A web interface IndExs - Index of Exsiccatae and a web service IndExs - Web Service is available for the exsiccata database of the BSM.

DiversityExsiccatae is a minor but fully functional component that is currently used in its SQL Server version with .Net client by the Botanische Staatssammlung München, to manage a database with bibliographic information and standardized abbreviations of botanical and mycological exsiccatae.
