The official acronym for the BIOTROP Herbarium, Bogor, is BIOT. There is continued improvement of the physical basis of the BISH Herbarium. The nonvascular section is in a new facility adjacent to the main Herbarium. There was therefore a significant increase in space available for the other collections. A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) allowed the purchase of additional compactors, cabinets, labour, and supplies. There is now a first-class research laboratory for systematic algological work. The genus folders for the world collection of vascular plants are being redone. The removal of asbestos from the ceilings, however, disrupted work for three months.
