This webinar will give an overview of herbaria and the history of plant collection in Arkansas, provide examples of how specimen data is used by the ANHC and the scientific community, detail the genesis of the Notes from Nature project and its goals, and demonstrate how to transcribe Arkansas herbarium specimens.
