Baylor University Herbarium

The Baylor University Herbarium was officially founded in 1967 as part of the Department of Biology at Baylor University (BAYLU). Currently located on the 2nd floor, A-wing, of the Baylor Sciences Building, the herbarium was organized by Dr. Floyd F. Davidson in 1967, then chair of the department, with the first curator Ms. Fannie Mae Hurst-Windham. Much of the herbarium is dedicated to Texas flora, though with specimens included from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Central/South America, and China. The herbarium also houses over 200+ specimens from Lindheimer, specifically those specimens near New Braunfels and Comanche Spring. Dr. Walter Holmes, Professor Emeritus of Biology at Baylor University, is the most recent curator of the herbarium who has specialized in the genus Mikania (Asteraceae) with the herbarium containing several types specimens.

NPS-DINO

Dinosaur National Monument Herbarium

Dinosaur National Monument manages a herbarium of over 2400 specimens that represents the remarkable diversity at the convergence of five ecological regions: the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, the Central and Southern Rockies, and the Wyoming Basin. Paleontologist Earl Douglass and O. A. Peterson of the Carnegie Museum made the earliest collections from the future Dinosaur National Monument prior to 1915. George Osterhout visited the quarry in 1925, and collected the type specimen of Uinta Basin cryptanth (Cryptantha [Oreocarya] breviflora), the first of more than one-half dozen holotypes from Dinosaur National Monument. More exhaustive collections occurred between 1931 and 1989 with additions to the collection continuing today. Goodrich and Neese (1986) published the Uinta Basin Flora in 1986, summarizing much of the floristic knowledge of the Dinosaur National Monument vicinity. An update, Uinta Flora (Goodrich and Huber), was published in 2014. Species of notable interest in the collection include the holotype of Ownbey’s thistle (Cirsium ownbeyi), Dinosaur wild buckwheat (Eriogonum lonchophyllum var. saurinum), orchard snakeweed (Gutierrezia pomariensis), rock hymenoxys (Hymenoxys lapidicola), Blue Mountain penstemon (Penstemon scariosus var. cyanomontanus), and Graham’s columbine (Aquilegia grahamii). Only one plant species from the Monument is listed as threatened or endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act: Ute ladies’-tresses (Spiranthes diluvialis), most of which occurs within the active floodplain of the Green River through Lodore Canyon. At least 75 species are either former candidates for listing, identified as sensitive by U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management, or tracked as species of concern by state natural heritage programs.

YU

Yale University Herbarium, Peabody Museum of Natural History (Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History-YU)

Founded in 1864 by Daniel Cady Eaton from his personal library and plant collection, the Yale Herbarium is an internationally recognized repository with holdings of approximately 350,000 specimens from throughout the world. There are an estimated 5,000 type specimens. The collection is particularly rich in ferns, bryophytes and grasses, as well as in historically important materials from the early botanical collectors. In addition, it was the herbarium of record for the flora of southern New England from 1864 until 1955, when that function passed to the University of Connecticut at Storrs.

ISC

Ada Hayden Herbarium (Iowa State University)

The Ada Hayden Herbarium has the largest collection of Iowa plants and fungi, containing over 600,000 specimens of vascular plants, bryophytes, fungi, and lichens. Functioning primarily as a research facility important for taxonomic studies (occurrence, distribution, and relationships of plants), it is also used for identifying unknown plants. Specimens are loaned to specialists at other institutions around the world to support research. Loans from other institutions allow our researchers access to other herbaria. Recently, herbaria have become a source of materials to use in molecular studies and to support basic research on biodiversity.

ARCH-herbarium

Archbold Biological Station

The Archbold Biological Station herbarium has over 4200 vascular plant specimens and is located in the laboratory of the Plant Ecology Program in the Richard Archbold Research Center at Archbold Biological Station in Lake Placid, FL. The collection consists predominately of plants collected from central and south Florida, with a strong emphasis on the southern Lake Wales Ridge near and on the property of Archbold Biological Station. Additional collections include bryophytes and lichens. The Archbold Biological Station is also known as the Leonard J. Brass Herbarium, named in honor of worldwide plant collector, palm expert, explorer, conservationist, and botanist, L.J. Brass (1900-1971). Dr. Brass founded this herbarium and collected the majority of its specimens. In February 2010, we also dedicated this collection to Dorothy Mundell, in appreciation of her long-time service to the herbarium. Carl Weekley and Rebecca Yahr also made significant contributions to the ABS herbarium. Eric Menges is currently the curator.

ANHC

Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission Herbarium

The Herbarium of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission consists primarily of specimens collected in the course of statewide ecological and biological inventory work conducted by the Arkansas Natural Heritage Program. Many of the specimens represent species that are rare in the state or were collected from rare or unusual habitats. The goals of the collection are 1) to provide a reference collection for work performed by Natural Heritage Commission staff and their conservation partners, 2) to house voucher specimens for rare plant records in the database of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Program, and 3) to voucher plants of ecologically sensitive or otherwise significant lands, including those contained within the State's System of Natural Areas. While most specimens are from Arkansas, special care is being made to assemble a collection of plants from surrounding states that are not presently known in Arkansas but are likely to be found there.

BRY-V

Brigham Young University, S. L. Welsh Herbarium

Vascular Plants. Curator: Leigh Johnson; Collections Manager: Robert Johnson. The herbarium has completed databasing the non-seed vascular plants, gymnosperms, and most monocots (still working on the grasses). Dicots are an ongoing effort; they are only complete for select groups and recently cataloged material. Some records that are incomplete, duplicate sheets, or that otherwise need additional attention may not be uploaded for searching here.

The herbarium at BYU is recognized by the Index Herbariorum acronym 'BRY'. 'V' indicates the vascular plant portion of BRY housed in the S.L. Welsh Herbarium. The S.L. Welsh herbarium also houses a smaller collection gifted to Brigham Young University from the Ogden Forest Service, which maintains its Index Herbariorum acronym 'OGDF'. BRY also encompasses the Herbarium of Non-Vascular Cryptogams (including lichenized fungi), which is administered independently with its own database, catalog numbers, and portal. The non-vascular cryptograms & lichens are curated by Steven Leavitt with emeritus curator Larry L. St.Clair.

Information made available here electronically, including specimen data and images, has been produced by support from Brigham Young University, NSF grant DBI–1203616, the Grand Canyon Trust, and a Utah-BLM Challenge Cost-Share agreement. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of our herbarium and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation or other supporting agencies.

BUT

Butler University, Friesner Herbarium

The Friesner Herbarium of Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana, grew out of the personal collections of Dr. Ray C. Friesner, Professor and Chair of the Botany Department, 1920-1952. Many students and other Butler faculty have contributed plants through the years. In the 1930s and 1940s, Butler had an active Masters degree program in Botany with a focus on florisitics and ecology of the state. The collection currently houses over 100,000 specimens.
