Theo Witsell

Chief of Research and Inventory

As part of the October 2022 WeDigBio transcription event, Theo Witsell, ANHC ecologist/chief of research/herbarium curator will present an online session. He'll summarize the compilation of county-level floristic inventories for Benton and Washington counties, two rapidly developing counties in northwestern Arkansas, as part of the ANHC’s County Natural Heritage Inventory (CNHI) process. This work made use of both traditional herbarium specimens and photographic observations on iNaturalist. The presentation will focus on the contributions from digital datasets and acknowledge the contributions made by volunteers who participated in specimen digitization and biodiversity documentation via iNaturalist. Theo will also provide some thoughts on how these digital datasets might be improved to help facilitate this work.
