The Lages Herbarium of Santa Catarina State University (LUSC) was founded in 2006 and it was made institutionally official in 2011. Currently the Herbarium has around 6.100 specimens and is registered under the acronym LUSC in the Index Herbariorum. The collection contains approximately 80% of the native species from the Brazil’s southern region, primarily from Santa Catarina State, and all from the Atlantic Forest Biome. The specimens registered in the collection are from floristic surveys of wetlands (locally called “banhados”) and Ombrophilous Mixed Forest areas that occur on the Santa Catarina Plateau. The collection is intended to contribute to our knowledge of the Santa Catarina Flora.
