Survey form

The most important early task for the project is to identify and characterise significant holdings of Linnaean material worldwide. To this end, a detailed survey form has been devised. The form is being circulated to institutions identified by the project group or through existing contacts. So far, 400+ forms have been sent out and a large number of responses received. Further submissions would be welcomed. The form can be downloaded from these pages as a Word document and includes return addresses.

Summary results of the survey are now available and can be viewed here.
