Prioritizing conservation of Solanum species using herbarium specimens.

I am creating distribution maps based on collection locations in the Caribbean and the Philippines to compare and contrast the levels of endemism and collection coverage of Solanum in the two regions. This information will be used to discuss preliminary conservation assessment recommendations within the framework of the Global Plant Strategy of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
