Using AI to reconstruct species’ histories and share knowledge of them

Mathew Austin* and Adam Smith, both Garden researchers, were recently interviewed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for an article on how the Missouri Botanical Garden is using AI to recover species’ biogeographic histories since the last Ice Age and to help organize our collections and make them available to the rest of the world!

* The article quotes “Matthew Albrecht,” but these quotes should be attributed to Matt Austin**.
** But… apparantly, neither Matthew nor Matt ever said the quote in question! And Albrecht was not interviewed for the story.
