The Emory University Herbarium (GEO) has more than 20,200 plant specimens, dating back to the early 1900s. The majority of the collection is composed of plants from the southeast USA collected by Don E. Eyles (aquatic plants), Robert F. Thorne (Flora of SW Georgia) and Madeline L. Burbanck (granite rock outcrop plants). Recent collections more focused on our growing global collection from the Mediterranean and Balkans (medicinal plants) and Australia (pollinator ecology).
