Lauren Sullivan from Iowa State University has developed an exciting extension to the functional traits protocol for seed traits and will weigh the seeds you collect for you! Lauren will take the measurements herself and has organised the necessary permits so you can send the seeds directly to her.
There are different procedures for sending the seeds to Iowa State University depending on if you are located in the US or in another country. Please see the protocol documents attached below.
Lauren has also reduced the number of seeds to be collected to 10 seeds per individual plant.
