The Herbarium at the University of Montana

The Herbarium serves as a primary reference and data source in the region for land managers and conservation organizations. It also serves as a vital resource for rare plant conservation studies conducted by private consulting companies and government agencies. It is used by graduate students, professors, consultants and visiting researchers.  Through the loan and exchange programs, specimens are available to herbaria throughout North America. Also, UM students and faculty turn to the Herbarium for undergraduate training and graduate research.
