Collectors Decrease font Increase font Restore font

Throughout Engelmann's life, he corresponded with plant collectors and scientific societies across Europe and North America. By clicking on the names below you can view scanned specimens collected by each of Engelmann's contributors. As only a fraction of Engelmann's herbarium has been digitized so far, this is only a partial list. For more information about these individuals and their relationships with Engelmann and each other, you may also consult Engelmann's personal correspondence on the Biodiversity Heritage Library at http://biodiversitylibrary.org/collection/engelmannpapers. The specimens and letters often traveled together, so there may be parts of letters mounted with the specimens or additional plant pieces may be in the letters.
