Relations between Herbarium Records and Other Records


In considering the design of E. D. P. records of herbarium holdings it is necessary to take account of the need for compatibility between such records and those of other types of collections, viz.:
  • Associated material, such as spirit specimens, pollen specimens, carpological and other bulky specimens and anatomical preparations;

  • Other botanical collections, including collections of living plants, collections of microscopic organisms, and palaeobotanical specimens;

  • In some institutions, zoological collections.

The various points that need to be borne in mind in connection with each of these are discussed.
