12. Photos

Digital photos of the species being collected should always be taken while in the field.  At least three photos should be taken for each collection:

  1. Landscape Level/Population
  2. Individual Plant
  3. Material Collected (seed)

The following naming convention should be used for all SOS photos and each photo should be given a unique picture number (A, B, C, etc):

PLANTS Code_Collection Number_Picture Number 

For example Chicago Botanic Garden’s collection of Symphyotrichum lanceolatum would have photos named the following:

SYLA6_CBG-419_A.jpg
SYLA6_CBG-419_B.jpg, etc. 

Send images to the SOS National Coordinating Office on CD or DVD via FedEx (see Appendix 1 for the FedEx address).
