PERMIT WOES. New rules implemented in Costa Rica sometime around the middle of last year have made it more difficult—and time-consuming—to obtain permits for the collection of DNA material in the country. Several investigators have had to postpone their visits for this reason. We are informed that a simple collecting permit can be processed in about two weeks, whereas at least three months are required in the case of a DNA permit. Prospective visitors should plan accordingly.

ON THE MOVE. Bean honcho Daniel G. Debouck was in town in early December, and left duplicates of identified Phaseolus (Fabaceae) collections. Ricardo Kriebel (NY) was back in Costa Rica for a few days, visiting family around Christmas. Robbin Moran (NY) is at this moment at the Herbario Nacional (CR), beginning another of his ever-popular OTS courses on fern systematics. And INB curator and Manual co-PI Nelson Zamora is presently in Panama, attending the last of the LAPI meetings.
