Michigan State University Herbarium Vascular Plants

Specimen Records: 65,326
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2015-02-20

The Vascular Plant collection is the oldest in the state, containing many specimens of historical importance. Nearly one-third of the collection was amassed by Dr. W.J. Beal during his 40 year tenure here. The collection is used locally by researchers and students working on systematic, evolutionary and ecological questions. Specimens are used in a service role to provide identifications for suspected plant poisoning cases, to aid in the identification of agricultural pests and to answer questions for local botanical enthusiasts.
