University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Herbarium (UWSP)

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point fungarium is housed within the UWSP Robert Freckmann herbarium. Formally registered in the late 1960s, the UWSP herbarium raplidly grew from a single cabinet of specimens into one of the largest herbaria in Wisconsin by the 1990s. Particularly rich in specimens of aquatic plants, graminoids, and diverse collections from the northern half of the state, it serves as an essential resource for studies on the flora of Wisconsin. The collection contains c. 200,000 vascular plants, c. 40,000 byophyte specimens, several thousand fungi specimens, and several hundred macroalgae specimens. The fungarium consists primarily of specimens collected by Carol Lamphear-Cook in the 1990s, mostly in the northern half of Wisconsin.
