This teaching module uses the often hidden information about a plant, a place, and a person connected through a herbarium specimen and how students can investigate it.
Herbarium specimens contain a multitude of information that can be investigated and summarized by students to create unique, relevant, and interesting stories of a person’s life, a landscape, and/or species biodiversity. For more information, see documents below.
