Climate change related to reduced plant size in Nevada
“Having a resource like the herbarium, with specimens collected and preserved for more than 100 years, is incredible,” Leger said. “The foresight of those early botanists has really paid off for science, and the resulting benefits to our communities throughout Nevada are valuable as we use the data to inform our decisions.”

The herbariums database, maintained by University Libraries, currently contains about 20,000 of the approximately 90,000 specimens housed in the Herbarium. The herbarium database can be found at http://contentdm.library.unr.edu/cdm4/browse.php?CISOROOT=%2Fherb
