Vitis rotundifolia (Muscadine)
Mill Creek Park (A. Harvey)
One of the core missions of the Georgia Southern University Herbarium (GAS) is to obtain representative specimens of all native and naturalized vascular plant taxa from all counties in the Georgia Coastal Plain, the flora of which is one of the least known in the state. To date, the herbarium contains over 20,000 accessioned specimens of vascular plants; about half of these are from the state of Georgia, of which about half is from Bulloch County. Approximately a quarter of our specimens are from the southeastern U.S. outside of Georgia.

We are not yet able to provide a searchable database of our collections online, although this is one of our long term objectives. In the meantime, we will provide increasingly detailed summaries of the content of our collections. We have specimens from 236 families of plants, listed below. For each family, the number of species and subspecific taxa accessioned in our collection is in parentheses. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more specific queries.
