Boise State University Lichen Herbarium (SRP)

The Snake River Plains (SRP) herbarium at Boise State University is a museum of plant, fungal, and lichen specimens to be used for basic and applied research by the Boise State University faculty, state and federal land managers working in southwest Idaho, and citizen scientists with legitimate botanical questions. Currently through the use of loans the collection is also accessible to the botanical community at large. With digitization of the collection the materials will be accessible without direct handling to the global botanical and ecological research community.
