University of Vermont, Pringle Herbarium, New England vascular plants (VT)

The Pringle Herbarium (VT) contains 300,000 specimens, including vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, algae and fungi. Of these, this portal will contain all of our New England vascular plant specimens, expected to number about 81,000. Other digitization projects cover type specimens, non-New England vascular plant specimens, North American bryophytes and lichens, macroalgae and macrofungi. These images and data are available through various portals. The herbarium does not maintain its own online database.
