Appreciate the detailed study and analysis you are doing, as well as
updating here.
I am glad that there is a protocol developed so that only a limited amount
of rare plant material is collected from the wild.

This year I had the opportunity to visit the Jepson Herbarium. There are
specimens there collected centuries ago and preserved so well that, DNA and
modern analysis can now be performed on them.

Photography at best can only capture the visuals, perhaps the collecting is
also done to preserve for future study?
