One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. - J.R.R. Tolkien
The Department of Biology is separated into two departments: the Botany Department and the Zoology Department, located in Davie Hall adjacent to the Coker Arboretum. (In 1982, the Botany Dept and Zoology Dept are merged into a single Dept of Biology).
The UNC Herbarium is founded by Dr. Coker and Botany department faculty who pooled their research collections and their students' dried plant specimens. It becomes the main repository for rare plants inventoried by the North Carolina Heritage Program beginning in 1976. Event Number: 7Modified by: Last Update: 2017-01-11Publish: 1
