These pages currently present data from nearly 70,000 of Dan Norris's 110,000 bryophyte specimens, and 25,000 of Jim Shevock's specimens (Shevock's first set is at CAS but most are duplicated at UC), as well as specimens databased by Paul Wilson at California State University at Northridge. These specimens, mostly georeferenced, are primarily from California, but also worldwide. We are actively curating the UC bryophyte collection (currently about 200,000 specimens total) and we intend to add to this database regularly. We anticipate adding data from other current collectors, including Brent Mishler and the Bryolab graduate students. Eventually we will include the entire UC bryological collection.
