Virtual Exhibit - Heritage Project
Week 6, Heritage Class
For the final two weeks of Heritage Class students mounted their dried plant samples. Herbarium standards were followed as they used acid free paper and a neutral pH glue to attach the dried sample to the herbarium sheet. Students included a specimen label (with common name, scientific name, 'Iipay Aa name, location, and traditional uses), and a fragment envelope. Herbarium collections are used in the study of plant taxonomy and in preserving the historical record of flora in geographic locations over time.
