The modern herbarium is used not only by scientists discovering new plant-based drugs, but also to document biodiversity. The herbarium was founded in 1908 by mycologist Dr. William Chambers Coker, and today is the second largest herbarium in the southeastern United States (only the Smithsonian Institution’s herbarium is larger). The herbarium, located in 401 Coker Hall, the center of campus, curates over 700,000 specimens of fungi, lichens, algae, mosses, and plants from around the globe with a focus on the native flora of the southeastern United States. Herbarium Curator Carol Ann McCormick will give a tour of the herbarium and will discuss some of the current research projects.
