The Archbold Biological Station herbarium has over 4200 vascular plant specimens and is located in the laboratory of the Plant Ecology Program in the Richard Archbold Research Center at Archbold Biological Station in Lake Placid, FL. The collection consists predominately of plants collected from central and south Florida, with a strong emphasis on the southern Lake Wales Ridge near and on the property of Archbold Biological Station. Additional collections include bryophytes and lichens. The Archbold Biological Station is also known as the Leonard J. Brass Herbarium, named in honor of worldwide plant collector, palm expert, explorer, conservationist, and botanist, L.J. Brass (1900-1971). Dr. Brass founded this herbarium and collected the majority of its specimens. In February 2010, we also dedicated this collection to Dorothy Mundell, in appreciation of her long-time service to the herbarium. Carl Weekley and Rebecca Yahr also made significant contributions to the ABS herbarium. Eric Menges is currently the curator. Nomenclature used as determined by Wunderlin (http://florida.plantatlas.usf.edu/) or (http://plants.usda.gov)
