The University of Florida Herbarium (FLAS) in the Florida Museum of Natural History was established in 1891 by Peter H. Rolfs. Current holdings comprise approximately 460,000 botanical specimens including many historical specimens dating from the 1800's and early 1900's. The vascular plant collection (ca. 267,000 specimens) has an excellent representation of the flora of Florida and the southeastern United States, large holdings from the West Indies (esp. Haiti) and other Neotropical areas. The bryophyte and lichen collections (ca. 120,000 specimens) are worldwide in scope with an excellent representation of species from Florida and tropical areas such as Costa Rica, Venezuela and Brazil. The wood collection (16,000 samples) is worldwide in scope with a excellent representation of tropical woods. The algal collection includes ca. 2,000 specimens, mainly from Florida. The Fungal Herbarium contains ca. 55,000 specimens. The herbarium's collection catalog includes ca. 70,000 specimens, mainly vascular plants, including ca. 1,000 type specimens. Digital images are available for approximately 40,000 specimens.
