Abstract

Deep in the halls of the University lives a curiosity cabinet of more than 70,000 specimens of plants, flowers, mosses, and lichens. The George F. Ledingham Herbarium is the legacy of its founder, whose life's passion was collecting plants and preserving the natural prairie landscape. Some specimens in the collection date back as far as the 1920s and range into the 2000s. The herbarium, which is maintained by the Department of Biology is of special use to taxonomists, field ecologists, and those working with endangered plant species.
