As of August 2007 the UNC Herbarium has catalogued approximately 332 specimens collected by Claire Newell. As cataloguing continues, more specimens will be found.

Newell is a graduate of Rangiora High School in Rangiora, New Zealand and earned a B.A. from University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Newell collected specimens while in graduate school at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She did vegetation surveys of three natural areas in the state: the Joyce Kilmer - Slickrock Wilderness, the Linville Gorge Wilderness, and the Shining Rock Wilderness. She used data from these studies for her doctoral thesis, “Local and regional variation in the vegetation of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.”
