Center for Plant Diversity / Herbarium
The Center for Plant Diversity has over 300,000 dead plants called herbarium specimens. Each specimens consists of a flattened and dried plant glued onto a sheet of 11 x 17 inch archival paper with a label in the lower right corner. The label has specimen data, including where, when, and by whom the specimen was collected. These data can provide detailed information about the collection location such as GIS data, elevation, soils, and plant community.
