ARGI - Arnis Seisums & Gints .......? - Syria, 2002

BAR or BARAKA - Georgian trip with Dr. Dzhimsheer Kereselidze organised by Henrik Zetterlund (Henrik Sjoman, Henrik Zetterlund & Janis Ruksans, Kereselidze Dzhimsheer, Lamara Asieshvili & Nino ? ) - 2007

JRRK - Janis Ruksans, Vaclav Josht, Hendrick van Bogaert (Rik), Koenrad van Pouche - Turkey, spring, 2009

SASA - Seisums Arnis, Stevens Norman, Archibald Jim - Turkey, 2003

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.     

Regards

Janis  "

Coincidentally, I dropped a pot of seedlings the other day and this was the first word that came out of my mouth. ;D

Since the pdf of the list from the RHS site is available to download, I don't seen any harm in placing it here... it is info from the PlantFinder publications....


A reminder that the RHS list of Collectors' acronyms is  here:  * CollectorsReferences.pdf (84.22 kB - downloaded 88 times.)
