Voucher Specimen Editor

The Voucher Display page shows information that is specific to a species name within a checklist. This data includes habitat, abundance, and voucher information. Vouchers are usually in the form of preserved specimens that have been deposited within a public herbarium. These voucher specimens serve as “proof” that the species was found within the research area. In the case of any doubt on the identification of a species, the voucher specimens can be inspected. Data editing features are enabled for portal users who are authorized editors for that checklist.
