Intermountain Herbarium Holdings:
The Intermountain Herbarium houses a photographic slide
collection of over 1,000 slides. These are used in teaching
and in making presentations. They are made available on loan
to local students and faculty. Most of the images on this
Web site are made from these slides; a few are from digital
images and hence, are not represented by a photographic slide.

The initial development of the slides collection was funded by
the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station. Most of the original
slides were taken by Dr. R.J. Shaw, who provided voucher specimens
for each of his photographs. The collection has since been augmented
by other photographers, not all of whom have provided voucher
Anyone interested in determining whether the Intermountain Herbarium
has a slide of a particular species should send an inquiry to
Mary Barkworth. We do
not have the resources to catalog the collection, nor to scan
the entire collection.
