Instant Lichen Collection

    Would you like an instant collection of identified epiphytic macrolichens from the Cascade Range of Oregon? I have about 10 boxes (half-height copy paper boxes) of extra specimens from Shanti Berryman's PhD thesis. Selected vouchers have been added to the OSU collection and she does not want the residual. I need to pass them along because our department is moving into a temporary space for a couple of years. 


    These are almost all identified to species. They are in field packets. They come from plot-based sampling. A spreadsheet with coordinates and elevation of each plot are available, but little else in terms of habitat information is available for label data. I would estimate about 1000 specimens.


    They are a lot to mail, but if you can pick them up in Corvallis between now and August 12, that would be great.


    Please let me know if you are interested. If more than one person is interested I will try to choose the destination based on the highest and best use. Feel free to contact me directly, mccuneb@oregonstate.edu

    Hi Bruce,


    I’m sure I can find a home for this collection either on the MBS or more likely on the Willamette. There is not much of a collection in Detroit, for example. I had started one and made a space that held nine photo boxes which was still mostly empty by the time I left. I think there’s already a pretty good collection on the MBS but I know both the Detroit and McKenzie offices of the Willamette, at least, could use them.


    Would it be ok if the collection were split up?

    Charity, that would be fine to split up the collection. If you or someone wants to orchestrate this, just let me know and we can set up a time for the transfer. Let's do that off-forum.

    Thanks!
