Paleobotany Collection Policies

Museums generally derive their prominence from their collections, and these holdings constitute the primary difference between museums and other kinds of cultural institutions. A museum's obligation to its collections is paramount. Each object is an integral part of a scientific composite. In order to preserve the paleobotanical specimens housed at the FLMNH, the following policy has been adopted. The FLMNH has established a formal collection policy governing all collections within the FLMNH. Users of the Paleobotany Collections are encouraged to see the FLMNH Collections Policy.
