Robert K. Godfrey Herbarium


The Tall Timbers Herbarium contains 2,561 species represented by approximately 10,500 specimens. Most of the specimens have been collected or determined by such respected taxonomists as Robert K. Godfrey, Roger F. Thorne, Robert F. Doren, Sidney McDaniel, and Angus Gholson. Specimen data and high-resolution images are viewable through the Florida State University Robert K. Godfrey Herbarium Database by selecting “Tall Timbers Research Station’s Herbarium” from the Institution drop-down box. Access to physical specimens is available by appointment. Specimen data and images are also available through iDigBio international biological specimen database.  Tall Timbers specimens can be searched specifically by selecting the “Add a field” box and “Institution Code” on the drop-down, then entering “TTRS” for the Institution Code.
