University of Notre Dame, Greene/Nieuwland Herbarium (ND)

The Greene/Nieuwland Herbarium is used for teaching and research in the study of botany, ecology, evolution, biodiversity and conservation, regional and global environmental change, genetics, natural products chemistry, archeology, and anthropology, to name a few. An official repository for specimens collected by state and federally funded surveys, the Museum of Biodiversity allows more undergraduate and graduate students to experience a vast array of naturally occurring substances--some of which may hold the key to new discoveries in drug treatments for diseases such as cancer.
