Below are some helpful guidelines to consider and observe when completing your application for any AGS grant or award.
Please note: If you propose to collect plants, herbarium specimens or seeds, it’s necessary to outline exactly how you propose to proceed. What advice are you seeking and do you have professional backing from a recognised botanical institute?
It is essential that you demonstrate a clear understanding of the legal restriction of plant and seed collection in your chosen area and the formalities to be observed when importing into the UK.
The Society does not impose a general prohibition on collecting, but does expect:
i. Careful observance of the rules, both in the UK and abroad, and
ii. A responsible attitude on the part of those collecting.
