The STAR Herbarium is a resource for scientists investigating regional flora, or concentrating on specific taxonomic groups represented in the region with an estimated 24,000 curated specimens. We have a substantial resource of research materials and an irreplaceable source of bioinformation that is utilized by research scientists in the state, by plant conservation biologists, government and private management agencies and by plant taxonomists.
Information provided includes distribution, historical and modern distribution information, population information, and morphological information. It is provided to researchers in a variety of forms. We maintain an active exchange of materials, a loan program, and data information derived from museum specimens.
