Species information

With "Hunt Lists" in hand, the next questions to address are:

  • Where might the plant be found?
  • What does it look like?

The midwestherbaria.org website houses Species Pages, regional checklists, a database of historical records, and a Golden Key for aiding in species identification. Below are step-by-step instructions for using these tools.
