> Dear List,
> Does anyone know of a paper on botanical collecting. So what to collect, which notes need to be made for the labels etc. Recently we received some collections just containing parts of composed and otherwise quite useless collections just because people do not know what to collect. Any suggestions are welcome,

I highly recommend this one:
Ross, T. S. 1996. Herbarium specimens as documents: purposes and
general collecting techniques. Crossosoma 22:3-39.
