University of Montana Herbarium (MONTU)

The Herbarium at The University of Montana (MONTU, http://herbarium.dbs.umt.edu) contains over 150,000 plant specimens and has the largest and best representation of the flora of the Northern Rocky Mountains in the world. The Herbarium is particularly well-known for its collections from the alpine and montane regions of Montana. Our vascular plant collections can be accessed via http://pnwherbaria.org. MONTU is also home to the Montana Diatom collection (http://herbarium.dbs.umt.edu/diatoms.asp), and we are excited to have our fungi collection included in the Mycoportal Database.
