Sample text

Unfortunately, the local authority denied us permission to cross to the other side of Parlung Tsangpo, where we intended to explore the mountain passes south of the town. The proximity of the border with India makes this area militarily sensitive. On 13 October we drove west from the town on the same road we had traveled the day before. There we explored several sites along the river as well as the lower slopes of the surrounding hills. Among the plants collected were Deutzia compacta var. multiradiata (02987), Malus rockii (02988), and Senecio echaetus (02990).

In 2000 I joined the team organized by Dr. Zsolt Debreczy and Dr. István Rácz, principal investigators of the International Dendrological Research Institute in Wellesley, Massachusetts, to travel to eastern Tibet, a region administered by Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. In the early 1970s, Debreczy and Rácz had begun the paramount task of preparing the Dendrological Atlas; in the decades that followed, both traveled to nearly every corner of the temperate climate zone to study and document trees and shrubs.
