The collection data meticulously recorded on millions of herbarium specimens housed around the globe have tremendous value for many fields of biological research. Recent national databasing efforts now make much of this information publicly available for a wide range of uses.
As a result of many years of hard work by NMC students and curators, as well as funding made available to NMC through the National Science Foundation. All of our data are available for viewing and download through the Southwest Environmental Information Network (SEINet).
