”Alexandru Beldie” Herbarium (Code: BUCF), hosted by ”Marin Drăcea” National Institute for Research and Development in Forestry, was founded in 1929. Together with other fifteen herbaria from Romania, BUCF is listed in Index Herbariorum. This herbarium is composed of more than 60.000 samples (paper sheets) of preserved specimens of trees, moss, lichens, ferns and plants. The aim of this paper was to provide an overview of the representatives of genus Abies Mill. included in ”Alexandru Beldie” Herbarium. Eighty paper sheets containing sixteen taxa belonging to genus Abies Mill. were analyzed. The majority of the plant material was collected from Romania by known botanists, between 1880 and 1960. European silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) and Nordmann fir [Abies nordmanniana (Steven) Spach] were the most common species. The Herbarium contains also some rare species such as Spanish fir (Abies pinsapo Boiss.).
