Botany Collections

  Botany Collections   

More than 111,000 botanical specimens are housed in the herbarium. This is one of three primary collections of Illinois flora in the state. The internationally significant Cutler-Blake ethnobotanical collection preserves remains of prehistoric cultivated plants that represent much of the primary evidence for early American Indian plant domestication in North America.

You can also learn about Botanical research going on at the Illinois State Museum.
