    That's good to know about gemmae.

    What started me thinking was a post by Tamlin some time ago where he said that some spp don't even have pictures on the web, and I assume some spp. aren't even available to experts here.

    If that's not the case, my idea would be a waste of time.

    You are correct that many species are not available to experts here in the States. I think if you could get good, labled material with location information it would be properly cared for by quite a few of our members; Tamlin, Pthiel, Pingman, etc. I would also enjoy getting anything that I could pass on to some friends who are not only great at caring for rarer species but also getting them into TC and distributing them out to experts.

    I agree that field collection should not be done wholesale, but with the rapidly shrinking biodiversity, I feel that a sensitive collection now is the best chance of maintaining these endangered species for posterity.

    If a small amount of seed can be secured and reproduced by skilled growers, and placed with reputable hrebariums additional future impact on the populations can be avoided.

    I realize that some may disagree with my opinion, but I stand by it.

    I agree with the collection of seed. To me, its not much of taking/wild collecting, seems more like ensuring the survival of a few rare species, as a couple replies have stated.

    Regarding import of such seed, please see my post in the General Discussions Forum.
