       The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh has one of the richest     collections of Chinese specimens and types in Europe, especially those collected by George Forrest during his seven expeditions to China between 1904 and 1932. Other important collections are those of Reginald Farrer and A. A. Hector L関eill?. RBGE has a very rich collection of Chinese types, especially those described by W. W. Smith, I. B. Balfour, and H. L関eill?. It also has an excellent library and living collections. RBGE provided a listserver for collaborators of the project.
