Research and Collections
The collections of the A. C. Moore Herbarium serve as an important research tool for scientists around the world. Often material may be loaned to partner institutions for review. This sort of exchange program improves the quality of the collection by ensuring that all specimens are correctly identified by botanical specialists. Additionally, requesting institutions benefit by having the use of a more comprehensive data set. Researchers may find it more advantageous to visit the herbarium if a particularly high number of specimens must be consulted. For preliminary research, the online search feature provides a widely accessible, condensed set of specimen information.
