Trees of Wisconsin: These images were created by Michael Clayton and by undergraduates who took the dendrology course through our department.

Tom Volk's Fungi: These are from Dr. Thomas Volk's personal collection of slides. Tom is a professor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Virginia Kline's Collection of the Vegetation of Wisconsin is from the personal slide collection of the late Dr. Virginia Kline.
