Collectors of the UNC Herbarium
Information compiled by Carol Ann
Assistant Curator of the University of North Carolina Herbarium.
The University of North Carolina Herbarium has
catalogued about 160 vascular plant specimens collected by Cliff Parks. As
more of the collection is catalogued and databased,
no doubt more specimens that he collected will be found.
Parks earned both his M.S. and Ph.D. from
the Department of Genetics at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
He joined the faculty of the Botany
Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and studied the
genetics of the Theaceae, particularly Camellia.
