B.A. Bennett Herbarium contains only Vascular Plants. With over 10,000 specimens, half of which are from Yukon, it is one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of vascular plants from the Territory. Visiting researchers and students are encouraged to use the herbarium. The library includes all significant northern floras including floras of Russia, Scandinavia, Europe, Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Additional resources include over 4,000 reprints primarily of literature relevant to the Yukon flora, including many historical accounts. Significant exchanges are currently made with UBC, ALA, CAN, DAO and to a lesser extent ALTA and WTU.
