During our two week field trip in Kyrgyzstan we collected material of Zabelia corymbosa from three locations and also made 229 general collections, 83 seed collections and took 57 DNA samples for the Jodrell DNA Bank from a wide range of habitats including some alpine and desert areas.

We would like to thank our first contact Dr. Ainagul Jalilova and Prof. Berkmamat Djembaev, the director of the National Academy of Sciences, Kyrgyz Republic for their help with organising our trip and issuing permits. Thanks as well to staff at the Botanical Garden and Arboretum in Bishkek and to staff of the Herbarium at the National Academy of Sciences Sultanova Beishekan, Muysthal and Dr. Georgy Lazkov, Botanist for their support and kind hospitality. Finally our thanks to Nuryk for careful guiding and Alex for safe driving.
