The R. L. McGregor Herbarium Lichen Collection houses approximately 45,000 specimens of lichens and allied fungi. The collection is focused on the Central Grassland region of North America, with specimens from the Great Plains comprising the majority of the collection.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 46,116 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
