MACF - MacFadden Herbarium, California State University Fullerton (MACF)

The herbarium is named for botanist Fay A. MacFadden, who sold her extensive collection of plants to the university just prior to her death in 1964. Specimens are continually added to the collection, which number over 30,000 vascular plants, about 12,000 bryophytes, and nearly 800 lichen specimens. The collection is used as research and teaching tools by our faculty, staff, students, and other researchers.
