The UBC Herbarium, part of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, is our important resource. Although it concentrates on the flora of British Columbia, it is worldwide in scope with a surprisingly good representation of certain regions such as the Hawaiian Islands. It is notably strong in bryophytes and marine algae, as well as vascular plants.
Important collections are:
- J.W. Eastham (~10,000 specimens);
- T.M.C. Taylor (~7000);
- K.I. Beamish (~6500)
- G.B Straley (~6000)
- V.J. Krajina ~10,000)
- W.B. Schofield (~1500)
