The Stillinger Herbarium consists of four complementary collections – vascular plants, nonvascular plants, fungi, and lichens. Together these collections provide a broad sampling of the botanical and mycological diversity in Idaho, and provide a valuable addition to the knowledge of the flora of the Pacific Northwest, and the flora of North America.
As of May 2010, the vascular plant collection – housed in room 22 of the College of Natural Resources Building – consists of ca. 160,000 accessioned specimens. The nonvascular plant collection (ca. 2700 specimens), lichen collection (ca. 10,000 specimens), and fungal collection (ca. 16,000 specimens) are housed in room 441 of the Life Sciences South Building.
The collections are available for research use during normal herbarium hours. Interested researchers should contact Pam Brunsfeld for more information about using our collections.
