Summary

Full Title

University of Lethbridge Herbarium (LEA)

Description

The University of Lethbridge Herbarium was founded shortly after 1968 by Job Kuijt, primarily as a teaching collection representative of the local flora. The herbarium houses the reference collection that forms the foundation for Kuijt's 1982 book A Flora of Waterton Lakes National Park and also numerous Packera collections by J.F. Bain. The collection currently includes over 20,000 specimens of vascular plants and remains an important research tool for botanists, students and the general public.
