The Consortium maintains a list of all herbaria in the Pacific Northwest with collections of vascular plants, nonvascular plants, algae, lichens, or fungi. The list includes herbaria housed at universities, museums, agency offices, or maintained by private individuals.
This list was compiled by contacting individual herbaria and consulting Index Herbariorum.
Do you manage or know of an herbarium not on this list? If so, please contact us.
