iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2017-06-14

The original Raymond Athey Herbarium collection at the University of Memphis was orphaned in the 1980s. Approximately 60,000(?) specimens from the collection were transferred to TENN and EKY in the early 2000s, but many of the accessions were left behind. Beginning in 2014, the new University of Memphis Herbarium was built on the roughly 18,000 specimens that remained. The present collection consists of vascular plants from the Southeastern US, predominantly those of Kentucky (46%) and Tennessee (23%).<br /><br /><b>Current research and collection emphasis is on the plants of West Tennessee.</b><br /><br />
