The UCLA Herbarium (LA) was founded in ca. 1930, and contains approximately 200,000 specimens, almost entirely dried vascular plants. The herbarium contains the collections of notable UCLA biologists such as Carl Epling, Harlan Lewis, Peter Raven, Martin Cody, Henry J.

The core of the collection (ca. 146,000 specimens) contains specimens from North America (60%), Europe (23%), the Pacific (7%), South America (5%), Asia (3%), and Africa (2%). The UCLA Herbarium also maintains a large collection of cultivated plants (ca. 11,000), a Santa Monica Mountains Collection (ca. 8,300 specimens), a Baja California Collection (ca. 2400 specimens), and a Type Collection (298 specimens).
