Hello all,

On the 1991 Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) / NAFEX exchange trip 
we saw some Sea Buckthorn. Jim Gilbert & Hector Black are very experienced with 

There may be a computer data base of cultivar information in the Russian 
language on varieties. While there I was given (the others on the trip may also 
have same) a booklet written by Maria Pleckenhova (now deceased) titled "List of 
Descriptors for Hippophae rahamnoides L."  The introduction says "The present 
list of descriptors has been designed to unify the described characteristics 
of Hippophae rahamnoides L.  for the accumulation, storing, and processing 
data in computerized data bases." 

The 24 page booklet in Russian and English contains no varietal information. 
I have no use for this booklet and would be happy to gift it to anyone 
actively working with sea buckthorn who may have access to such a data base or wished 
to record such using existing protocol. Although I'd imagine such a data base 
would be accompanied by the descriptors. I thought I had a booklet of their 
varieties, but can't find it right now.
