Abstract

Evaluates the predictive value of using herbarium specimens to locate present-day populations of native Echinacea species in Missouri. Most historical populations were not located, although time since collection affected the likelihood of relocating E. purpurea. A greater percentage of populations collected post-1980 were found to still exist.
