Back to The Future

A new publication in Taxon describes the development of the single-user photostations we are using for imaging our specimens. The ingenuity of Curator of Vascular Plants Prof. Charles Davis, Director of Biodiversity Informatics Jonathan Kennedy,  and Christopher Grassa, is allowing herbarium staff to image vascular plant specimens at an amazingly fast rate. Read the paper,  “Back to the future: A refined single‐user photostation for massively scaling herbarium digitization” (https://doi-org.ezp-prod1.hul.harvard.edu/10.1002/tax.12459).
