RE: fern spores available

Hi Ms. Pence--
   Glad to hear you have stored the spores I had collected previously....I
hope they keep well.  If you find the time, would love to hear from you
about what you actually got to grow from them, and if you were able to
indentify them.  Regarding your request to receive spores of these latest
ones, you would need to contact Brian Aikins on this list.  He and I had
recently communicated about this through e-mails on this list--he will be
the distributor of the spores.  Let me know if you have further questions.
Take care and good luck with your project.  Sincerely, Robert

Hi Robert,
I think we may have received some of the spores you brought back a couple
years ago.  We have them banked in our International Pteridophyte Bank, and
did germinate samples from them and got some sporophytes, but I would need
to sort out what we actually have growing currently.  We would be happy to
bank samples of your newest collections, as well.  We have a liquid nitrogen
storage facility for storing spores, gametophytes and shoot tips of
pteridophytes.  Its ultimate goal is endangered species preservation (we
also do seed plants and bryophytes), but with pteridophytes we are
interested in storing a wide variety of taxa, common or rare, in order to
also study the longevity of various fern spores under these conditions.  We
currently don't have much funding for this project, but we do try to take
materials when they are available. So, again, if you would like, we would be
happy to bank samples from your most current collection.
