Elon University Herbarium - Bryophytes (ELON)

ELON has approximately 2500-2600 herbarium specimens in its collection. Most of these (~2200) are vascular plants primarily collected by students in botany classes over the past 70 years and are primarily from North Carolina and adjacent states. ELON also has a small collection of bryophytes (~200 specimens), the majority of which are from the moss and liverwort exsiccatae distributed by T. C. Frye, and macroalgae (~100 specimens).
