Plant Vouchers

Voucher herbarium specimens are significant contributions to botanical research that consist of pressed plant material plus informative labels. Vouchers assist researchers with species identifications, distributions and provide historical documentation for future examinations as taxonomy may change.

Researchers assisting with the CNAI, including undergraduate and graduate students, have successfully vouchered a number of new species for Duval County. These specimens are verified through the University of South Florida Herbarium. For more information click on the vouchered species below, and visit the Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants.
