I feel better now. No, not from my allergies, but from my ignorance. Authors of a November 2015 article in Current Biology assessed collections of plants in herbaria in twenty-one countries. They concluded more than half had been given incorrect names. I work with the University of Michigan Herbarium, and I am confident that is not the case there. But not for my lack of trying. Most times when I turn in a batch of specimens, I soon get feedback correcting IDs. Sometimes on a post card, and sometimes four pages like the 12/17/85 letter from Ed Voss and Tony Reznicek. Most of the problems were grasses and sedges. One of the corrections was a smooth brome. Are grasses picking on me? As much as I appreciated their diligence and support, I did feel ignorant. But I feel better now. Ignorance loves company. Maybe I should try a MAGA rally next!
