NMC welcomes loan requests from researchers working in association with a university, private facility, or government agency where specimens can be safely stored and handled (e.g., another herbarium). Loans are provided for a period of one year, with subsequent requests for an extention possible. We request that all specimens be properly annotated prior to return. Please forward loan requests Patrick Alexander ( 521-3008).
Destructive sampling: Destructive sampling requests should be made prior to carrying out such work. Requests should include a brief justification and description of the material needed.
