Yes, and that reliance is complimentary in terms of producing anything
useful. Field work is helped along by herbarium studies and monographs and
so forth, leading to more productive field work. Otherwise we have piles of
dead sticks that serve no purpose.

No one makes fun of medical sample taking but for some reason gardeners
never tire of throwing stones at botanists who make specimens. What do they
think is the basis for naming plants and understanding their relationships?
It can't all be field work ...
