University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU)

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU) is a department within the North Carolina Botanical Garden of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The vascular plant collection is world-wide in scope, and focuses on the native flora of the Southeastern United States. Approximately 400,000 of our ca. 650,000 specimens will be imaged & databased for THE KEY TO THE CABINETS: BUILDING & SUSTAINING A RESEARCH DATABASE FOR A GLOBAL BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOT. Our world-wide pteridophyte collection will be imaged & cataloged for the PTERIDOPHYTE COLLECTIONS CONSORTIUM. NCU also curates plant fossils (esp. Devonian and collections of Patricia Gensel), fungi (esp. collections of W.C. Coker, J.N. Couch, A.B. Seymour), lichens (esp. collections of Gary Perlmutter), bryophytes, and algae (esp. red marine algae of temperate zones collections of Max Hommersand & coralline algae collections of Paul Gabrielson). NCU is open to the public & welcomes researchers; contact Curator to reserve on-campus parking permit.
