Abstract Detail


Fisher, Amanda Elizabeth [1].

Botany at the Beach: California State University, Long Beach Herbarium (LOB).

The LOB herbarium is one of 66 extant herbaria in California and a recent addition to the Consortium of Californa Herbaria. LOB was founded in 1949 to preserve research specimens and to serve as a teaching resource for botany courses. The Biological Sciences department at CSULB has a tradition of organismal and field-based research and in addition to the herbarium, houses collections of birds, mammals, fishes, macroinvertebrates, and diatoms. LOB contains approximately 15,000 specimens and is ca. 60% California native plants, primarily from the Sierra Nevada and southern California. We are implementing new efforts to digitize the collection to provide data to the public through the Consortium of California Herbaria (CCH). Our long-term goal is to build the herbarium through exchanges and new collections that document the plant diversity of southern California.
