University of Manitoba (WIN) - Lichen Collection

Latest version published by University of Manitoba on Jul 25, 2018 University of Manitoba

The Cryptogamic Herbarium of the Department of Biological Sciences (WIN) houses the most broadly representative collection of lichens in Manitoba, approximately 15,000 specimens. These include a representative Hudson Bay lichen collection from Wapusk National Park, collected annually between the years 2002 and 2010. The genus Cladonia represents a sizeable portion of the collection, largely from Manitoba and Newfoundland. WIN has served as a rich repository of genetic and chemical material for phylogenetic and secondary metabolite studies.
