WIS Resources for Students

The Wisconsin State Herbarium is the 3rd largest public university herbarium in the USA.  As such, we are dedicated to student education.  Graduate student requests account for 28% of our outgoing specimen loan activity, and herbarium staff directly supervise PhD, MS, and BS students at UWMadison and beyond.


In 2012 WIS handed out more than 100 mini-plant presses to younger students in the greater Madison area.  Did you take home a mini-plant press?  If so, we'd love to hear from you . . . what have you collected?
