Herbario UPRRP

Our sister collection, the UPRRP Herbarium, is also under the direction of Dr. James Ackerman. It is a repository of preserved vascular plants, bryophytes, algae and fungi that are available for studies in taxonomy, systematics, natural history, ecology, biogeography, genetics, ethnobotany, and other topics. Not only does the UPRRP Herbarium have an excellent representation of the flora of Puerto Rico, it also has numerous specimens from many other islands of the West Indies. Our herbarium is presently among the most active in the Caribbean with current holdings of over 54,000 specimens, most of which are vascular plants.
