Founded in 1908, the Joseph F. Rock Herbarium (HAW) serves the official university repository for botanical plant specimens and includes the Lyon Arboretum specimen collection. It is the result of decades of plant exploration by some of the leading researchers in the Pacific basin and collections continue to expand. Today, the herbarium is part of the University Museum Consortium, and comprises approximately 50,000 dried preserved plant specimens.
HAW staff maintains partnerships and memberships with the Pacific Neighborhood Consortium, the Society of Herbarium Curators, International Association of Plant Taxonomy, American Society of Plant Taxonomists, Natural Science Collections Alliance, Hawaiian Botanical Society, and the Hawaii Museum Association.
