H.A. Stephens Herbarium
The H.A. Stephens Herbarium at Emporia State University was established around 1911 by a teacher who began preserving and cataloging local plants as an identification reference for students and the general public. Today the herbarium is a collection of 43,000 plants that have been dried, mounted, and each is accompanied by careful documentation that can be used to verify identifications. These plants are a permanent record of regional flora, especially for the remaining tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Our mission is to document this biodiversity and to maintain the tradition of providing knowledgeable identification of plant specimens for students, scientists, and the general public.
KTSC is currently in the process of digitizing the collection in a Specify database and publishing data as it becomes available. Although KSTC routinely updates their data, outdated taxonomic names, mistaken specimen identifications, erroneous localities, and other problems inevitably occur. Investigators should verify data by direct examination of specimens, and notify KSTC if discrepancies are found.
