The Texas Oklahoma Regional Consortium of Herbaria was developed to advocate for and to organize herbaria in Texas and Oklahoma. TORCH has four primary objectives:

  • Provide a mechanism for communication and collaboration among regional herbaria of all types and sizes
  • Promote regional data sharing and plant taxonomic and collections-based research, outreach, and education
  • Function as a regional consortium in the plant research collection network
  • Assist herbaria with infrastructural and management guidelines and problem solving
