Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Massey Herbarium (VPI)
The Massey Herbarium (VPI) at Virginia Tech is an active and growing collection that seeks to represent the floristic diversity of the central Appalachian and Mid-Atlantic regions. Growing from a small teaching collection, the herbarium was established as a state repository in 1927. As of 2015, accessioned vascular plant specimens numbered 108,000. It is estimated that about 65% are from Virginia, the balance from all parts of North American. Groups particularly well represented are ferns (especially Isoetes), Poaceae, Cyperaceae (especially Carex), and Asteraceae (Eupatorium, Packera, Solidago).
