Pittsburg State University, Theodore M. Sperry Herbarium (KSP)

The ca. 65,000 specimens document the distribution and natural variation of vascular plants and bryophytes in Kansas, adjacent states, and North America, excluding ca. 16,000 backlogged specimens. Many specimens are unicates. Important holdings from abroad include the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Peru, Myrtaceae (mostly Madagascar and New Caledonia), Poaceae (worldwide), and 16 isotypes. Ca. 5800 collections of North American bryophytes are data based on the Consortium of North American Bryophytes website (http://bryophyteportal.org/portal/) but hundreds or thousands outside of N. Amer. are backlogged. Over ten percent of the collections are vouchers for published research. Ornamental (non-native) occurrences are not data based. Curatorial support from the National Science Foundation (CSBR 175627) is gratefully acknowledged.
