To request a loan:

Loans of specimens are available to established herbaria for study by their staff or associated professionals and students. Returned loans must be annotated unless specific explanation is provided to the curator.


Destructive sampling policy:
Destructive sampling of Pringle Herbarium specimens is possible given written request to the curator of the herbarium including a justification for the sampling and an indication of the likelihood that the results of the sampling, ordinarily molecular-genetic information, will reach the scientific community via a common portal such as Genbank or a publication. The returned specimens need to be annotated with the nature of the material removed and if possible the relevant publication.
