Data from: Specimen-based analysis of morphology and the environment in ecologically dominant grasses: the power of the herbarium

Christine A. McAllister, Michael R. McKain, Mao Li, Bess Bookout & Elizabeth A. Kellogg
Herbaria contain a cumulative sample of the world’s flora, assembled by thousands of people over several hundred years. Recent advances in computation, DNA sequencing, and image manipulation have allowed us to capitalize on this resource. Using herbarium material, we conducted a species-level analysis of a major clade in the grass tribe Andropogoneae, which includes the dominant species of the world’s grasslands, from the genera Andropogon, Schizachyrium, Hyparrhenia, and other groups. We imaged 188 of the...
