University of Tennessee Bryophyte Herbarium (TENN)

The collection houses over 183,000 filed specimens from throughout the World with a strong emphasis on North America [Pacific Northwest and Alaska, SE US], Mexico, and Asia. The collection is especially strong in collections from Tennessee [southern Appalachian Region] and from Mexico, a result of extensive collecting by A. J. Sharp and other notable collectors.
