The following information was compiled by Carol Ann McCormick,
Assistant Curator, University of North Carolina Herbarium.

The University of North Carolina Herbarium has approximately 90 herbarium specimens collected by Joseph Rohrer. As our collection coninues to be databased, more of his specimens will be catalogued.

Most specimens collected by Rohrer in NCU’s collection date from the 1970’s when he was a graduate student at the University North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Rohrer published the results of this research in 1983 (Castanea 48: 189-205, "Vegetation pattern and rock type in the flora of the Hanging Rock area, North Carolina"). The bryophytes that he collected in that area (published in Rohrer, J.R. 1982. Bryophytes of Hanging Rock, Avery and Watauga Counties, North Carolina. Castanea 47: 221-229) were deposited at MICH.

Dr. Rohrer is currently professor of Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He is doing taxonomic treatments for Geum and Prunus (Rosaceae) for the Flora of North America. Two on-going projects are inventories of the bryophytes and vascular plants of Putnam Park and Eau Claire County.
