Ecology lab launches herbarium database

Anne Grant categorizing herbs

Thanks to efforts from the Faculty of Environment’s Ecology Lab to keep the WAT Herbarium on campus, the University of Waterloo will continue to have a collection of dried, pressed and preserved plant specimens available for research, education and teaching purposes.

The herbarium collection is digitally archived and can be accessed by visiting the Ecology Lab, EV1-134. The Ecology Lab recognizes the generosity from the WAT Herbarium, originally located in the Biology department, the University of Waterloo and Environment computing department Mapping, Analysis and Design that created the database.
