collections:

In Herb. Forest Research Institute Kepong [KEP], usually referred to as Herb. Kuala Lumpur.

The first number of the series was collected on Sept. 5, 1908, and the series started in earnest early in 1918 at which time the Conservatorís number had reached 1250. Prior to that there had been numerous small collections of which the Conservatorís was one. It was then decided to simplify the use of numbers, and make the collectorís number and the Conservatorís number the same. All numbers that were received by the Conservator thereafter and which had a collectorís field number below 1251 were changed to the Conservatorís number by prefixing 0; thus field no 102 became C.F. 0102. The C.F. series has now (in 1947) reach≠ed the number 65.000, but there is a very large gap from 50.000 to 64.000, owing to books, which had been issued to District Forest Offices, becoming lost as a result of the Japanese occupation.

Borneo collections made by forest officers in Sarawak and Brunei, and even dupl. received from Br. N. Borneo, are numbered in the series too.

Several dupl. in Herb. Sing. [SING], Edinburgh [E], and certainly elsewhere.
