The Utah Valley University Herbarium (UVSC) was established in 1987 as a research and teaching facility by Dr. James G. Harris. As a result of his research, the herbarium contains a diverse collection of specimens from Greenland, Canada, and high elevation mountain ranges in the Intermountain Region. In addition, UVSC has one of the most comprehensive collections of the genus Braya (Brassicaceae) outside of Canada and the genus Draba (Brassicaceae) in Utah. The herbarium has extensive Utah collections from the deserts of the San Rafael Swell, high elevation mountain peaks in along the Wasatch Front (i.e. Mt. Timpanogos, Mt. Nebo) and the Deep Creek Range. Recently, vouchers from Dr. Renee Van Buren's book, Woody Plant of Utah, have been processed and integrated into the herbarium. Currently the herbarium houses over 17,000 accessioned herbarium sheets, with an average of 1,500 specimens being added to the collection each year. The current curator, Dr. Jason A. Alexander, is a specialist in desert floras, specifically the Mojave Desert and the Great Basin, and the genus Astragalus (Fabaceae).
