Notes From Nature Talk

Annotatation indicates atypical example, how do I catalog?

  • Catalyne_Gerecik by Catalyne_Gerecik

    The handwritten annotation indicates a determination that this is an atypical speciman, and perhaps more than one annotator. It seems like someone went to site to check plant. How should this be cataloged?

    The strict rule is type in the actual original label details. That is all we HAVE to do. If you find spelling errors or errors that you are 100% certain of, then correct them if you wish. Additional annotations, if you can decipher them can be added, say, in brackets, in the additional notes section. I take the view that if it's on there and relevant, then get it recorded, but the Scientists here lean towards just what is on the original.
