LA - University of California, Los Angeles Herbarium (LA)
The UCLA Herbarium (LA) was founded in ca. 1930, and contains approximately 150,000 specimens, almost entirely dried vascular plants. The herbarium contains collections of notable UCLA biologists such as Carl Epling, Harlan Lewis, Peter H. Raven, Martin Cody, Henry J. Thompson, Jonathan Sauer, Joseph Andorfer Ewan, Elizabeth McClintock, Mildred E. Mathias, Lawrence L. Kiefer, and Barry A. Prigge. The core of the collection contains specimens collected between 1915-1965 from North America (65%), Europe (5%), the Pacific (10%), South America (10%), Asia (9%), and Africa (1%). The UCLA Herbarium also maintains a large collection of cultivated plants (ca. 11,000), a Santa Monica Mountains Collection and Los Angeles Basin (ca. 11,000 specimens), a Baja California Collection (ca. 3,000 specimens), and a Type Collection (400 specimens). Additional collection strengths include the Lamiaceae, Loasaceae, and Onagraceae clades.
