Herbarium Votes

To have a vote at the nomenclatural meetings, a herbarium must be an
institutional member of IAPT.  This also entitles it to discounts on the
Regnum Vegetabile series.  I believe that the number of votes is related
either to the number of staff members or the number of specimens and may be
as many as 5.  It is also my understanding that if two herbaria are
physcially combined but keep their own identity membership in IAPT, then
each is considered separately in allocating votes.  Subsets within a
herbarium (bryological herbarium, mycological herbarium) are not eligible
for votes even if the herbarium as a whole has multiple memberships in IAPT.

Would a member of the nomenclatural committee care to provide exact
information?  The above are simply odds and ends that I have picked up
along the way - and may well be inaccurate.
