Joshua Tree National Park (JOTR)

The JOTR herbarium contains vascular plant, lichen, and bryophyte specimens from the area within the National Park boundary. The focus of this herbarium is to provide a synoptic collection representing a minimum of 90% of species known to occur in the Park. The collection is mainly used for resource management and educational purposes, however, researchers are encouraged to utilize the specimens as well.
