When scientists collect plant samples in the field, they need a place to store and study those specimens. Join us for a conversation with NHMU's Herbarium Collections Manager, Allison Izaksonas. Allison is responsible for taking care of the 130,000+ plant specimens in the Museum's collections — including some truly amazing tree slabs from the Uinta Mountains. She answers questions about how Museums take care of all this cool stuff — and how specimens and data are used for research.
