Seed Collection

Morgan took particular interest in the clover genus Trifolium.  Before his death in 2017, he had written most of a new monograph describing the clovers of California. Within this description were proposals for naming numerous new rare Trifolium species. Much of the work in his monograph derived from a thorough seed collection that he made containing 100's of collections containing tens of thousands of seeds of Trifolium found throughout the state. The Norris Center is actively looking for botanists to help carry on Morgan's taxonomic investigation into this genus.
