An article that was circulated amongst the EEB (ecology and evolutionary biology) department today: “Herbaria are a major frontier for species discovery”.

An idea that most well practiced taxonomists are aware of, so nothing new there, but having data that can be statistically defined is another issue all together. I think that this sort of data is valuable in selling the research that I and, some of you readers, do.

It’s short, cute, and elegant.
