Moving the Collections Down the Ledo Road

You first collect the specimens (see Herbarium Specimens), and then you have to take them someplace where they can be dried and labeled. The transport phase of plant collecting can involve many different vectors. In this case, a skinny mule loaded down with a bunch of other stuff was used to carry some of our plants out of the Hukaung Valley. [NOTE: That's Andrew Henderson, NYBG palm systematist, in front with the yellow raincoat].
