Reminder: Small Collections Grant Proposal Deadline 30 November
Small Collections Grants. IAPT provides competitive grants for the improvement and/or maintenance of botanical collections (herbaria) of algae, fungi, and/or plants. Collection improvements include projects involving digitization, processing a specimen backlog, shipping an endangered collection to another herbarium, or other similar tasks. In unique cases we will also consider requests for materials associated with mounting herbarium specimens. Applications are particularly welcome from herbaria in developing countries, but the grants are open to small herbaria worldwide. In general, a small herbarium is recognized as one with fewer than 100,000 specimens. Herbaria must be listed in Index Herbariorum (a free online listing of herbaria).
