Abies samples required for research
« on: April 30, 2012, 02:05:19 PM »
Friends, a request has been received  for needles of Picea abies ssp. alpestris for research at the Munich Botanic Garden:

"Dear all
For a research project on Picea, my director, Prof Susanne Renner, is looking for needles of
Picea abies ssp. alpestris (Brügger) Domin.

According to Flora Europaea it is an intermediate between ssp. abies and ssp. obovata.
Does anybody have this taxon in the collection?
If so, we would be very pleased if you could send us a branch with 20-100 needles.
Thanks in advance
