The NCSM Herbarium is within The Naturalist Center in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in the center of Raleigh, North Carolina. The collection of ca 2000 specimens focuses on native flora of North America, with particular emphasis on the southeastern United States. Important collectors include John I.
