he Morris Arboretum of University of Pennsylvania was recently awarded a grant from the Advancing Digitization of Biological Collections program of the National Science Foundation. Dr. Cynthia Skema of Morris Arboretum led the "Mid-Atlantic Megalopolis" (MAM) proposal. The $1.5 million award for the MAM Project supports the Arboretum and 10 other collaborating institutions in a three-year effort to image, transcribe label data from, and georeference about 700,000 herbarium specimens collected in the Mid-Atlantic region.
