Documenting the Importance of Small Collections
Presenter/discussion leader: Anna Monfils, Associate Professor and Director of the CMC Herbarium, Central Michigan University.
Date/time: 12 May 2014, 3:00 p.m. EDT
Anna Monfils is leading a team from the North American Network of Small Herbaria (NANSH) Working Group in a research project to provide empirical, quantifiable evidence for the value and importance of small herbaria. Anecdotal and some published evidence suggest that specimen data from small collections can significantly augment existing datasets from larger collections. Anna will outline the current research focused on small herbaria and discuss how the research might be expanded to other disciplines.
