Harvard University-HF

Harvard Forest Herbarium

The HF Herbarium contains over 3,400 specimens of just over 800 species collected locally over the last century (from 1908 to 2010). Many specimens were collected in the first half of the 20th century, primarily during three periods: 1908-1913 (~10% of specimens), 1928-34 (~35%), and 1947-49 (~45%). Specimens collected at HF but originally housed in regional herbaria (HUH, MASS) or personal collections are also now included. Modern flora was collected from 2004-2007 by Jerry Jenkins, Glenn Motzkin, and Kirsten Ward. Two digital databases, one describing the herbarium specimens, and the other describing the HF flora are publicly accessible. The database is now searchable on-line in addition to the digital downloads below.

Yale University Herbarium, Peabody Museum of Natural History

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.
