Stover-Ebinger Herbarium (Eastern Illinois University)

Specimen Records: 27,495
Media Records: 14,410

The <b>Stover-Ebinger Herbarium</b> has about 84,000 specimens. It contains a very good representation of the flora of the midwestern United States; about half the specimens were collected in Illinois. Students and faculty conducting ecological studies and floristic inventories use the herbarium to help identify the plants they see and collect. Students in Plant Taxonomy, Dendrology, and Wetland Plants classes use it to become familiar with species and for identification of specimens. In our courses on Wetland Plants, Economic Botany, Medicinal Plants, and Plant Evolution, herbarium specimens are used to to make morphological comparisons among relevant plant taxa. The herbarium was started in 1899. Originally named the Stover Herbarium for Dr. Ernest L. Stover, professor of botany from 1923-1960, the Botany Dept. faculty voted in Dec., 1995 to "expand" the name to honor John E. Ebinger on the occasion of his retirement. Dr. Ebinger collected about one-third of the specimens in the herbarium and served as curator from 1963-1995. For information about vascular plants, macroalgae, and bryophytes, contact Dr. Gordon C. Tucker (gctucker@eiu.edu). Our specimens of fungi and lichens were transferred to the Illinois Natural History Survey (ILLS) in 2015; for further information about these collections, please contact Dr. Andrew Miller (amiller7@illinois.edu).
