HERBARIUM OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA AT LAFAYETTE (884 words)
The UL Lafayette Herbarium was founded in the early 1940s and presently holds about 124,000 specimens, including approximately 23,000 specimens of bryophytes (primarily mosses), and 5,000 specimens of mostly marine Algae.
The Herbarium is rich in Louisiana flora, with special emphasis on Acadiana flora, wetland and coastal plants, and pteridophytes (ferns and "fern allies") of Louisiana, and on bryophytes of the southern United States.
As natural plant communities--in Louisiana in general and Acadiana in particular--diminish due to encroachment and obliteration by development and coastal erosion, the specimens in the UL Lafayette Herbarium will become increasingly valuable as a permanent and easily accessible record of the Louisiana flora.
