CE: County Floras in the Digital Age
Theo Witsell, Ecologist / Chief of Research / Curator (ANHC Herbarium)
“County Floras in the Digital Age: Using Digital Specimen and Observation Records to Promote Biodiversity Conservation”
Description: This talk will summarize the compilation of county-level floristic inventories for Benton and Washington counties, two rapidly developing counties in northwestern Arkansas, as part of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission’s County Natural Heritage Inventory (CNHI) process. This work made use of both traditional herbarium specimens and photographic observations on iNaturalist. The presentation will focus on the contributions from digital datasets in general and acknowledge the contributions made by volunteers who participated in specimen digitization and biodiversity documentation via iNaturalist. It will also provide some thoughts on how these digital datasets might be improved to help facilitate this work.
