  • Brock University 1 published dataset

    Brock is a publicly funded university located in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. Its location along the Niagara Escarpment grants it a special position within a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Niagara region is special as it represents one of the last regions in Canada where the Carolinian ecosystem can be found and where many specie at risk are present. Unfortunately, for various reasons, the region has been the target of few intensive biodiversity studies with specimen collections. The university, along with several local organizations, envisions itself as a leader in improving our understanding of plant diversity in the region and therefore aims at becoming the official specimen depository for the region. The establishment and registration of our herbarium, which includes collections dating back to the 1930’s, is an important step to engaging the international community. This will allow improving the knowledge of the area and exchange with other institutions that may have studied in the region. It is also a collaborative effort with other local organizations that believe this initiative timely considering new conservation projects such as those of the Niagara Land Trust.

  • Living Prairie Museum 1 published dataset

    The Living Prairie Museum Herbarium is located within the Living Prairie Museum Interpretative Centre (LPM) located in the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Founded in 1967, the LPM Herbarium contains over 250 vascular plant specimens, with a focus on plants found in native tall grass prairie habitat. Many of the specimens were collected during surveys by the International Biological Program, which lead to the protection of the 12 hectare (30 acre) remnant tall grass prairie site that would become LPM. The establishment and registration of our digitized herbarium is an important step towards sharing the diversity of tall grass prairie species with the international community. Our current online herbarium can be accessed at http://www.livingprairie.org/
