Hi Margie,

Thanks for the information.

Quick question...  Does your inventory of Ribes odoratum (or
Ribes aureum var. villosum [synonyms]) have any holdings
that rank with the Crandall?

Also, when your inventories come online will they have
narratives associated with the specific holdings like the
GRIN database?

Looking forward to your database.

Thanks,
Tom
