PBMS visits Natural History Museum bird collection at Tring

Richard Shore and Elaine Potter met with Douglas Russell, the Senior Curator for Birds’ Eggs & Nests at the Natural History Museum (NHM) at Tring. The aim of the meeting was to discuss how the PBMS and NHM can work more closely together and share and exchange samples, thereby adding to the NHM collection and to the breadth of the PBMS tissue archive. The meeting culminated in a series of actions designed to strengthen future collaboration.
