"... Herbarium specimens provide a window into the past that increases our temporal, geographic and taxonomic vision of how phenology and potentially plant success and ecosystem processes, have changed and will continue to be affected as the climate changes. With a thorough and growing understanding of the potential and limitations of this rich historical data source, combined with the modern tools of digitization, data sharing, and integration, researchers will increasingly be able to address critical questions about plant biology ..."
