University of Vermont, Pringle Herbarium, vascular plants excluding those from New England (VT)

The Pringle Herbarium (VT) contains 300,000 specimens, including vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, algae and fungi. Of these, this portal will contain about 180,000 vascular plant specimens, including all vascular plant specimens except for those from New England. Other digitization projects cover type specimens, vascular plant specimens from New England, North American bryophytes and lichens, macroalgae and macrofungi. These images and data are available through various other portals. The herbarium does not maintain its own online database.
