Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Herbarium (GND)

Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in coastal Mississippi is in the initial stages of developing its herbarium collection to support research and outreach activities at the Reserve.  Eventually this small collection (currently <1000 specimens) should represent a plant inventory of the Reserve lands.  By sharing the collection on SERNEC we hope to enlist outside expertise and provide information to potential researchers.  An unusual feature of the collection is that most specimens have a corresponding field observation on iNaturalist, and these observations are referenced on the specimen sheets and in SERNEC.
