Notes: Entered Aug 2022. This herbarium has been founded to store and permit study of important collections from the flora of Louisiana and the surrounding states. In particular, it will house voucher sets for published floristic, phytosociological, and phytogeographical studies of remnant and disturbed habitats as well as range-record collections. As it grows it will function as a resource for botanical courses and enable comparative identifications for technical groups.
