The Wichita State University Vascular Plant Collection includes over 4,000 specimens from the south central Great Plains region. Specimens were collected, identified, and cataloged by faculty and students of the WSU Department of Biological Sciences.

In our Virtual Herbarium, specimen-level data with associated herbarium image and/or field images are available. Specimen records include scientific name (labeled "Title"), common name (labeled "Other title"), collectors and catalogers (labeled "Authors”), date collected (labeled "Date issued"), as well as other data. To open a specimen image, click on "View/Open" below a record. The link "Show full item record" leads to a full view of metadata including geographical coordinates (“Coverage Spacial” and “Verbatim Elevation”) and habitat information. Herbarium specimen images are zoomable, enabling study of details and characteristics.
