The Marie-Victorin Herbarium is on the move

The process of moving the Marie-Victorin Herbarium from the administration building of the Montreal Botanical Garden to its new home in the Biodiversity Centre (also located on the site of the MBG) began on November 28. Eight botanists packed specimens in boxes and, after transport, unwrapped and placed them in new storage cabinets. The move provided a convenient opportunity for updating the classification procedure, to adopt the new system developed by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group in 2009.
