collection into a state-of-the-art, motorized facility.
The renovation included the completion of a new Botany
Library and Reading Room. The Botany Department’s
holdings also include extensive collections of fungi, lichens,
mosses, liverworts, ferns, and the Economic Botany Collection
dating from the Columbian World Fair held in 1893.

field trip has been included to highlight this exhibit.
