Living Prairie Museum Manitoba Herbarium (LPMMBH)

Project name: Trinational Monarch Knowledge Network

Dataset summary : The Living Prairie Museum Herbarium is located within the Living Prairie Museum Interpretative Centre (LPM) located in the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Founded in 1967, the LPM Herbarium contains over 250 vascular plant specimens, with a focus on plants found in native tall grass prairie habitat. Many of the specimens were collected during surveys by the International Biological Program, which lead to the protection of the 12 hectare (30 acre) remnant tall grass prairie site that would become LPM. The establishment and registration of our digitized herbarium is an important step towards sharing the diversity of tall grass prairie species with the international community. This dataset represents the digitized vascular plant specimens collected mostly within the city of Winnipeg.
