Duke Fern Lab Database

Connecting systematic data to voucher specimens since 1998!

The FERN LAB DATABASE is maintained by Kathleen Pryer (Duke University) and Eric Schuettpelz (University of North Carolina Wilmington). It is used to store and manage published and unpublished data associated with herbarium specimens. It includes voucher specimen details, identifications, information on silica-dried material availability, and DNA sequences, as well as spore size and chromosome count data.
