Title: Collectors References and expedition initials
Post by: johnw on February 22, 2010, 11:55:09 AM
We got a Polygonatum sp. from the SRGC that has sprouted already.

It is marked CLD #447. Anyone have an idea who CLD is?

Hi, John.... CLD denotes collections from the 1990  Chungtien-Lijiang-Dali expedition.

 This ones data: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Chungtien, Lijiang & Dali Expedition (1990), China: Yunnan, NW: Dêqên Zang Aut. Pref.: Zhongdian Co.     3550 m.

 The identification for this one is P. sibiricum, or so they say. I do not grow it so I cannot offer an opinion on it.

Although far from complete, it does include CLD.

Referencing some collector number abbreviations from the link above, I highlighted a few:

BC&W   Beckett; Cheese, M.; Watson, J.M.
Mac&W McPhail & Watson  (I purchased a share of this Turkish expedition back in the late 1970s)

I had always hoped for a Mac & Cheese expedition  ;D ;D ;D

Great suggestion Gail ;D but possibly not because the full number the plant came with was SP47.

Ashley - SP does not occur in  the list of collectors included in Mike Salmon's seed list (2001-2002). The nearest is SB (Salmon & Blanchard).
JJA - Jim and Jenny Archibald
MS - Michael Salmon
BBE - Bowles Botanical Expedition (many decades ago; Brian Mathew was a young squirt at the time and this expedition may have led to his present stature.)
Rodger - I think this should be BSBE (Bowles Scholarship Botanical Expedition to Iran, 1963). The members were Brian Mathew, David Barter, Stuart Baker & David Pycraft.

Could it be shorthand for the species author citation... yikes, look at that name!  (also, note Tilia spelling)
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200013624
Tilia henryana Szyszyłowicz,

Possibly, it is an Accession Number from an arboretum.

And another one: Thalictrum flexuosum HC 970351 (according to the RHS a synonym for Thalictrum minus ssp. minus)
Just saw HCM = Heronswood Chile so maybe it's this one???
Title: Re: Collectors References and expedition initials
Post by: Afloden on February 23, 2010, 08:40:43 PM
Wim,

 I have the old Heronswood catalogs at home and will check the HC collection location unless someone beats me to it.

 I have a Polygonatum SBQE310 supposedly collected from Kangchenjunga. If the collection number is right, am I safe to assume it is the Tibetan side of the mountain? If someone knows where I can find the actual list of plants/seed collected it would be of great help.

 Thanks,

 Aaron Floden

In the Plantfinder list, CM and W is listed as Cheese M, Mitchel J and Watson J but wasn't the M Tony (therefore A) Mitchell? He came to live and work in NZ for a while but didn't like either NZ or Australia and I think thereafter went to south Africa.

Aaron,

Kangchenjunga has no Tibetan side, it lies on the border of Nepal and N India (Sikkim) but not in Tibet. The "Q" of the SBQE refers to the Quinghai province of China, part of this province used to belong to Tibet but was added after the confiscation of Tibet by the Chinese to Quinghai. Quinghai province is a good distance away from Kangchenjunga and a large part of todays Tibet lies in between so I am a bit puzzled by your reference to Kangchenjunga for this expedition?.

I have now a colchicum sp. with a first time flower grown from (ex) JW5629 (via SRGC seedex).
I suppose JW stands for John Watson, but does anyone know from what area/country the plant's origin is ?
And even better, does anyone has an ID for this one ?

RUDA - Rukšāns Janis, Dambrauskas Eugenius - Turkey, 2003



Janis  adds this note about his collection numbers :

"In  the last years my trips are marked quite uniformly

The first two ciphers indicate the  year, then abbreviation from state/country and A or S - means autumn or spring. This  is  an easier system as now I'm travelling so much.

 14ARMS - means 2014, spring trip to Armenia

14TUS - means 2014, spring trip to Turkey

14GRA - means 2014, autumn trip to Greece

and so on.
