Abstract/Artist Statement

After its move from the Classroom Building to the new Biological Sciences building, the COP Herbarium (plant museum) was disorganized and partially damaged, and a majority of the specimens had outdated species (and many Family) names. Starting in the Fall semester of 2012, students began updating records and specimens. In this semester (Spring 2013), that work continued with an emphasis on organizing updated specimens and creating a new database structure, and entering some specimen data. At this stage the Herbarium can be accessed conveniently by students and faculty for both teaching and research.
