Every year around this time I think about Aldo Leopold’s ode to Draba, a tiny, inconspicuous plant that can serve as an early sign of spring in some areas for the extra observant.
iDigBio researchers and staff joined nearly 2000 other attendees from over 60 countries at the virtual Botany Conference, July 18-23, 2021. Talks throughout the conference showcased the essential role of herbaria–and digitized data associated with herbarium specimens–in the botanical sciences.
Join iDigBio and colleagues from GBIF, Université de Montréal, New York Botanical Garden, and NHM London in a colloquium at the Botany 2021 conference highlighting the impact of and potential for community data curation on herbaria.
The annual Botany Conference is a multiple scientific society conference serving over 1,000 plant scientists and students whose research and practice span the globe. The conference encompasses the diverse scope of botanical study. Come visit us at the iDigBio Booth!
