Users can search the SDNHM Herbarium databases. Plant searches can be done by family, genus, specific epithet, Atlas Square, and the results can be sorted in many different ways. The results of a search can be downloaded to the users’ computer in either MS Excel or MS Word. Each plant on the list can be clicked to start a Google™ image search for that plant. Users can search the Plant Atlas database alone, which contains all the specimens collected to date for the project, or only the Herbarium database which contains the historical collection from the 1800s to the present, or both. When searching both, specimens collected as part of the Plant Atlas project, but accessioned into the herbarium, are referenced with their herbarium accession number.
