Publisher's Acknowledgement:

Special thanks goes to the many publishers and authors that have graciously granted OSU Herbarium and OSU Libraries permission to digitize and present the applicable type definitions next to their specimens. In putting this project together, OSU Libraries spent a great deal of effort following the publication trail to discern who maintained copyright over a particular body of work. We have tried to the best of our ability to secure permission to digitize and post each type description, however, there are some gaps, places where copyright ownership has become mudded during the passage of time. So while we have made a good faith effort to identify and seek permission for publication -- we found that this simply was not possible in every case. Moreover, a small number of presumed rights holders have not yet been traced or have not responded to previous correspondence. ***Please note, in nearly all cases, reproduction permission was granted solely for the limited materials requested for this project. For exact citations, please consult the image database.

We ask the copyright owners, heirs, or estate managers of any of the individuals, organizations, or publications which we were unable to contact to notify May Chau as soon as possible, so that we may seek permission from them to include items they control.
