We calculated it based on the time and travel it would take to recollect all the specimens (i.e. replacement cost), this has little meaning for the types of course, but it is somewhere to start. You can imagine that for a collection of over 100,000 specimens this is a large amount of money.

Subject: [Taxacom] Insurance value of herbarium sheets

Does anyone here have experience about insurance value of basic herbarium specimen or type specimens? How to estimate it and do you have any examples about this issue? I´ll be very thankful about that information as soon as possible.

Kindest Regards
