S.M. Tracy Herbarium
The S.M Tracy Herbarium is a collection of plant specimens including angiosperms (flowering plants), gymnosperms (cone bearing plants), ferns, bryophytes (mosses, liverworts, hornworts), algae, lichens, and fungi.
These specimens and living populations comprise the basic research material of plant taxonomists and are important to botanists interested in a broad range of research, including: systematics, rare and endangered species, biogeography, and invasive species.
The collection is also used by foresters, agronomists, and ecologists to determine the identity of a plant and to document the past and present ranges of plants.
The collection is overseen by Dr. Daniel Spalink.
