You would think that scientists would know how many species occur in an area, especially one as well-populated as Cache County. But scientists at Utah State University just discovered two new species of wildflowers that only occur near Logan – and they think more are out there.
Researchers at Utah State University were recently awarded a large grant by the National Science Foundation to revamp biological software known as Symbiota. The project focuses on digitizing specimens, making it easier for researchers to access biological data.
If you’re a scientist studying any kind of plant or animal species, you’ve probably come across Symbiota. But, if you’re like me and that’s not your cup of tea, you may have never heard of it.
