Bringing Asia to digital life: mobilizing underrepresented Asian herbarium collections in the US to propel biodiversity discovery
This TCN will digitize ~40,000 vascular plant specimens from the Asian Continent. This is roughly 33-40% of our non-North American vascular plant specimens. (September 2021-August 2025)
Building a global consortium of bryophytes and lichens: keystones of cryptobiotic communities
This TCN focuses on the Lichen and Bryophyte specimens in our collection from outside of North America. We will image and database ~50,000 lichens and
~50,000 bryophytes contributing data to the lichen and bryophyte portals. (September 2020-August 2024)
Using Herbarium Data to Document Plant Niches in the High Peaks and High Plains of the Southern Rockies - Past, Present, and Future (SoRo)
COLO is the lead institution on the Southern Rocky Mountain TCN. Most of our efforts are going into the development of the Consortium of Southern Rocky
Mountain Herbaria Portal ( soroherbaria.org ), digitization is mostly complete (September 2017-August 2023).
Building Digital Collections and Infrastructure for the 21st Century at the University of Colorado Herbarium
Building on previous digitization efforts the Botany Section of the University of Colorado Museum (COLO) will image, georeference and transcribe all of its vascular plants form Colorado.
