Research use


Sometimes a good image can answer the question and we encourage researchers to ask for images before they decide which specimens to borrow.

Images are particularly useful when the requested loan is from the type and figured collection or is extremely fragile.

Many of our collections already have images available. Future plans include complete imaging of the type and figured collection and any new accessions. The types will all be available on-line by 2009.
