Brigham Young University, S. L. Welsh Herbarium (BRY-V)

Note: We reorganized our image file structure on our server out of necessity; most specimen images will not be viewable until a solution for remapping images is developed.

Vascular Plants. The herbarium has completed databasing the non-seed vascular plants, gymnosperms, and most monocots (still working on the grasses). Dicots are an ongoing effort; they are only complete for select groups and recently cataloged material. Some records that are incomplete, duplicate sheets, or that otherwise need additional attention may not be uploaded for searching here.

The herbarium at BYU is recognized by the Index Herbariorum acronym 'BRY'. 'V' indicates the vascular plant portion of BRY housed in the S.L. Welsh Herbarium. The S.L. Welsh herbarium also houses a smaller collection gifted to Brigham Young University from the Ogden Forest Service, which maintains its Index Herbariorum acronym 'OGDF'. BRY also encompasses the Herbarium of Non-Vascular Cryptogams (including lichenized fungi), which is administered independently and curated by Steven Leavitt and emeritus curator Larry L. St.Clair.

Information made available here electronically, including specimen data and images, has been produced by support from Brigham Young University, NSF grant DBI–1203616, the Grand Canyon Trust, and a Utah-BLM Challenge Cost-Share agreement. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of our herbarium and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation or other supporting agencies.
