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

The ca. 60,000 specimens document the distribution and natural variation of vascular plants and bryophytes, primarily those of Kansas, adjacent states, and North America. Ca. 8,000 specimens are backlogged, including approximately 500 from Madagascar. Many specimens are unicates. Important additional holdings from abroad include the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Peru, Myrtaceae (mostly Madagascar and New Caledonia), Poaceae (worldwide), and 16 isotypes. Ca. 6300 collections of North American bryophytes are data based on the Consortium of North American Bryophytes website (https://bryophyteportal.org) or this website, but many hundreds worldwide remain backlogged. Over ten percent of the collections are vouchers for published research. Ornamental (non-native) occurrences mostly are not data based. Student and volunteer curatorial assistance, and well as generous financial support from the National Science Foundation (CSBR 1756276), are gratefully acknowledged.
