Herbaria are a major frontier for species discovery

A very nice article published in PNAS enhancing the role of herbaria (and other museum collections, really!) in biodiversity research. Of all the new species I have described, only one I found in the field.  Discoveries are really made around the corner...in many cases.  The statistics presented is really interesting! Great read!  See paper here
