The latest issue of the Flora of North America newsletter highlights two presentations on field books given at the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC). The first presentation was given by Rusty Russell, Principal Investigator on the Field Book Project. The second presentation was delivered by Andrew Doran, Administrative Curator of the Herbaria at the University of California, Berkeley. Doran desribed resources for providing improved access to scanned field books from the important collections of Willis Linn Jepson, Ynes Mexia, and Joseph Rock.
