Herbaria provide useful information for studies related to anatomy, morphology, systematics and taxonomy of plants. In Romania, sixteen herbaria collections exist, the one hosted by “Marin Drăcea” National Institute for Research and Development in Forestry being among them. The aim of this paper was to provide an overview of the representatives of genus Acer of “Alexandru Beldie” Herbarium (Code: BUCF). Each sample provided the following information: the scientific and popular names of the species, the taxonomic classification of the species, the place of collection, the date of collection, summary data about the biotope of the harvested plant and the name of the person who collected the plant. Every sample was evaluated and the degree of conservation was assessed. 333 paper sheets and thirty one taxa belonging to genus Acer were sampled. The collection contains several subspecies and varieties of some of the most common maple species across Romania (e.g. field maple), and also some rare species native to China or Japan. The vast majority of samples are in a good conservation phase, representing a valuable database for future interdisciplinary research.
