Sampling Methods

The data supplied by the HIBG contain mutliple specimens with the same accession number. As the data are loaded, if the accession number already existed, the UTM coordinates are appended to that record's UTM coordinates. Thus, more than one coordinate may exist for a specimen because multiple clones of the specimen were planted throughout the gardens.
