Dear All

The Western Australian Herbarium (PERTH) is planning to build a new herbarium. To provide the highest level of protections and preservation of the specimen collection we are currently researching Temperature and Humidity control. It is envisioned that these controls will protect the fragility of the collection and inhibit insects and eliminate the need for fumigation.

We would appreciate feedback on any recent research on this subject and any problems herbaria might have encountered trying to achieve optimal conditions for their collections.
