14023: Albany Regional Herbarium Collection - building a comprehensive resource to meet community needs
The Albany Regional Herbarium has been used as a regional centre for plant identification and information for over 30 years, assisting with community conservation and environmental projects.
This project will teach volunteers to identify and collect targeted conservation species as well as other non-conservation species not currently in the collection.
Volunteers will participate in field work and undertake most of the post collection preparation of specimens. The herbarium library will also be updated by collecting recent and relevant taxonomic keys/papers and local identification guides which will assist herbarium users to make accurate identifications.
