The University of Guam Herbarium specializes in research on the insular floras of Guam, the northern Mariana Islands and Micronesia, a region in the western tropical Pacific of over 2000 islands in an area the size of the continental United States. Important collections include those of P H Moore, A F Rinehart, B C Stone and R T Tsuda. The Herbarium contains over 57,000 specimens (with 46,000 phanerogams and pteridophytes) and is listed in the Index Herbariorum, the world directory of public herbaria. We currently seek inquiries for exchange of specimens, which should be directed via post to the Curator.
