Excerpt from The Botanical Society of Edinburgh: Instituted 17th March, 1836 The advantages attending this part of the Society's scheme may be stated thus z - Whilst an individual is contributing from his duplicate Herbarium, plants which he can easily afford, or which are abundant in the country or district in which he resides, he has, in return, his desiderata supplied from the united collections of, it may be, a hundred or more individuals, thus brought from perhaps every quarter to a common centre, again to be as widely dispersed. It is obvious that no ordinary private correspondence can present equal advantages. The Society, on the other hand, whilst increasing and extending its own collections, has the satisfaction of knowing that it is con tributing to the formation of authentic Herbaria elsewhere, and diffusing a uniform and accurate system of nomenclature, taken from the best authorities.
