University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Max & Fran Hommersand Algae Herbarium (NCU-Algae)

The Max & Fran Hommersand Algae Herbarium is curated by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU).  Note that algae collected before 1995 by Hommersand were placed in formalin. Gabrielson's non-coralline specimens are a mix; if pressed fresh this is noted on the specimen label. Gabrielson's coralline specimens were not put in formalin unless noted on the label. NCU also curates vascular plants, lichens, fungi, bryophytes, & plant fossils. NCU, located in the center of the UNC-CH campus, welcomes visitors & researchers; contact Curator for information on hours & parking.
