Nothing’s BETter than BETULACEAE!

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU) once again seeks the aid of Citizen Scientists!  We’d like you to join us for an expedition through the Betulaceae (birch) family!

The Betulaceae has six genera and 167 species within its family.  The combined production of edible nuts and the tough bark that denotes this family makes Betulaceae a tough nut to crack!  However, we trust that you all will handle it with ease!

It’s always an incentive to lend a hand to the family that gave us hazelnuts!  From coffee additives to chocolate bars, what is not to like?! Please help us map these trees across the Southeastern United States, and thank you for your company on our expedition.
