The University of Michigan Herbarium researchers study some of the largest genera of flowering plants in the world, with consequent issues of conserving rare plants, assessing biodiversity, and conveying that information to the interested public in a timely manner. Some focus on tropical plants, how and when they disperse between continents, and how they evolve across wide swaths of tropical forests. Ultimately we strive to contribute knowledge and expertise about the growing loss of biodiversity worldwide on both the local and global level.
