A Brief Note Concerning Specimen Records of
Endangered and Threatened Plant Species
In an effort to meet our obligation to protect populations of endangered
species from over-collection, some of our specimen data (such as specific
locality information) have been removed from those online records for endangered
species. These data are made available to researchers
We are aware that making our herbarium specimen data available
involves striking a delicate balance between access to data that are important
to research and the potentially reckless posting of sensitive information.
To that end, we have removed specific locality information for Appendix 1 species listed by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
Can't find the specimen you're looking for online? Not all of our specimens are digitized. We may have it as a physical specimen - and be able to digitize it for you.
