The RBG has a policy of ethical collecting. Our collecting activities will not pose a significant threat to the survival of endangered wild species, habitats or ecosystems.
Species not yet collected from the RBG’s main site are the first target of herbarium specimen collecting, in order to obtain a complete collection of all flora currently growing in the Royal Botanic Garden in Tell Ar-Rumman, Jordan.
The second target is to obtain herbarium specimens of Jordanian flora either from other herbaria or institutions, or by directly collecting them in the wild, with the aim of having a complete collection of herbarium specimens of all Jordanian flora.
The third stage is to produce duplicates to be distributed to other herbaria in Jordan, as needed.
After our new herbarium building is constructed, type specimens, other important specimens and important related material will be obtained from their sources and housed in the RBG's national Herbarium, in a protected unit especially designed for their storage.
