Join Herbarium staff for a behind-the-scenes tour of the UNC Herbarium, a research collection of plants and fungi from around the world. The Herbarium curates nearly 1 million specimens of fungi, lichens, algae, mosses, vascular plants and plant fossils. We will tour the various collections and discuss how the specimens are collected and how they are used to document biodiversity, to target conservation efforts, and to understand the evolution of plant life.
