Showcasing The Leo A. Galloway Herbarium at Missouri Western State University .

The Leo A. Galloway herbarium housed in the biology department at Missouri Western State Univeristy is comprised of dried, preserved and annotated specimens of over 3000 valuable plant species, particularly native to the mid-western United States. The Herbarium collection is maintained and stored in Agenstein Hall in the biological sciences department. Dr. Leo A. Galloway, a former biology faculty, was a plant taxonomist and he worked on the genus Abronia, which belong to the Nyctaginaceae family. Dr. Galloway established the Herbarium in 1972 and most of the specimens in the Herbarium were collected by him. We are currently working on cataloging and databasing of the gymnosperms specimens, and are currently continuing our work with the angiosperms.
