Flora of Rutgers Campus

Lena Struwe, director of the Chrysler Herbarium, is the lead investigator in two projects focused on observing and labeling the biodiversity present in Rutgers University campus areas.

The Flora of Rutgers Campus is a checklist of all the species that can be found on campus areas. It has been further developed by student herbarium collections, which have been a feature of botany classes at Rutgers since 2011. The checklist and observation data is housed in the Consortium of Northeastern Herbaria and contains over 400 wild and naturalized plants found at Rutgers–New Brunswick.
