After a brief introduction of herbaria during a student tour, I put together a collection of pressed plants including their leaves, roots, and reproductive parts. Each pressed specimen was mounted onto thick cotton paper and glued. Annotated cards include Family name, Genus and species names, and ecological data. Collection included forty-one freshwater and estuarine samples, most are native but some invasive plants were included.
This project was completed for my BES 488 Wetland Ecology Class and features wetlands plants.
