NYBG WeDigBio 2021 - Webinar: Spotlight on Herbarium Research: Epiphytes!
Friday, April 9, 2021: 11am - 12pm EDT (UTM-4:00)

Citizen Scientists have contributed to rapid acceleration in the digitization of botanical specimens in the past decade resulting in unprecedented access to information about the plants of our world. This expansion has enabled new research applications, boosted the efficiency of species discovery, and encouraged collaboration across continents. During this hour, listen to perspectives from three botanists who study plant families included in NYBG’s Virtual Herbarium Expeditions, and learn how they use digitized specimens and data for biodiversity research and conservation.
