University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (fossils) (NCU-PC)
STATEMENT ON OFFENSIVE CONTENT ON SPECIMEN LABELS: Collection records at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU) may contain language that reflects historical place or taxon names in an original form that is no longer acceptable or appropriate in an inclusive environment. Because NCU preserves data in their original form to retain authenticity and facilitate research, we have chosen to facilitate conversations and are committed to address the problem of racial, derogatory and demeaning language that may be found in our database. Insensitive or offensive language is not condoned by NCU.
