catalogue of small seeds
in the NCSC seed and fruit collection
We provide a searchable catalogue of nearly 600 seed images based on the NCSC seed and fruit collection. Seeds were
imaged by Curtesa Farrow as part of a directed independent study (BO
493). Web design and database editing were carried out by
Alexander Krings and Mary Kruger. Currently only small seeds held at NCSC
are included. Thus, primarily large seeded groups like the oaks,
hickories, buckeyes, etc. are excluded. Unfortunately, some
small-seeded taxa are represented by poor
samples. As better samples are collected, we will update these
images appropriately. All images are copyright of the North
Carolina State University Herbarium, but may be used free of charge for
educational purposes. To verify current nomenclature, we suggest
cross-referencing with the USDA,
NRCS PLANTS database.
