George Safford Torrey Herbarium, University of Connecticut (University of Connecticut-CONN)

An active collecting program adopted by both past and current faculty, staff and students in the University of Connecticut's Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) has enriched the collections at CONN with a wealth of specimens from many world regions, which serve as a critical foundation for diverse scientific research activities. Notably, our specimen resources represent one of the most important research collections of native New England plants and include an excellent representation of the region's imperiled and invasive species. The CONN Herbarium, in conjunction with EEB, promotes the use of its collections as educational resources in plant biology.
