Plants of the Columbus State University Herbarium

Transcription of specimen label data from the Georgia's Columbus State University Herbarium

We've taken digital photos of all 7258 vascular plant specimens in the collection and now we need your help to figure out the what, where, when, etc., of the collection events that they represent.  Columbus State University's Herbarium is located about two hours southeast of Atlanta, just across the Chattahoochee River from Alabama.  It was founded in 1961 but may contain specimens that are much older.  Help us uncover the treasurers of this small herbarium and watch as the distribution map on BIOSPEX grows.  How many Georgia counties, US states, and other countries are represented in the collection?  We'll find out with your help!
