Beginning in 2004, curators and associates of herbaria in the central Great Plains have gathered in a series of Great Plains Plant Systematics Symposia to present research and discuss management and enhancement of herbaria in the region. This page has been developed to facilitate communication among herbarium workers in the region, and will be further developed.

The Central Great Plains Herbarium Network welcomes participation from workers associated with herbaria in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota. Herbaria in this region are listed below, along with associates who have participated in one or more of the Great Plains Plant Systematics Symposia. Please contact Carolyn Ferguson for more information, including information on upcoming meetings.
