University of California Davis, Center for Plant Diversity - Herbarium (DAV)

University of California, Davis herbarium collections are worldwide, with emphasis on California, North America, and neotropics (especially Ecuador and Baja California). The lichen collection was founded in 1968 by Shirley Tucker based on her own collections and exchange material she had acquired. The collection was rehoused and stabilized in 2020, and the label data was entered into Symbiota in 2021.
