The University of Alabama Herbarium

The herbarium serves the three functions of the University: teaching, research, and service. Classes in botany make use of the collection for instructional purposes. A separate teaching collection is maintained with specimens of the local flora. The collections serve as a repository of research materials for study by students and faculty at The University of Alabama and, through loans, at herbaria worldwide. The collections are used for identifying plants for the general public.
