    I am interested in setting up a very focused and probably
temporary herbarium exchange program in order to increase the holdings
at USCH of marine vascular plants. We desire flowering and/or
fruiting material of ANY genus within the following groups from
anywhere in the world, including African and Indo-Pacific:

    1. mostly submersed plants in families Cymdoceaceae,
Zannichelliaceae, Zosteraceae, etc.
    2. woody "mangroves" in genera Avicennia, Ceriops, Laguncularia,
Rhizophora, etc.

    I'll be happy to answer any inquiries (off-line probably is best),
and discuss what might be returned in exchange.

        Thanks very much, John Nelson
