Full of Mysteries

UBC Vancouver, BC

In the UBC Herbarium Collection, there’s a lot of fascinating information captured on herbarium sheets. From macroalgae that cannot fit on the page to vascular plants covered with research annotations, herbarium sheets can provide snapshots in time.
This photo emphasizes how important it is to have a specimen with its matching label for future research. Many old herbarium sheets remain a mystery like pressed specimens without labels and sheets with glued labels but missing the actual specimens!
