This is the field data card NATS uses to note significant characteristics of the habitat in which a truffle is collected. If you send in a truffle for identification this information helps us to learn about its habitat and range. The card is mostly self-explanatory; the "T/R/S or Lat/Long" field is for Township/Range/Section or GPS data if available, and the "Aspect" is the direction a slope is facing (leave blank if flat).
There are three ways to print out this card: You can copy and paste the form below into a word processing program, you can click here to go to a printer friendly version and print it directly from the web page, or you can click here to download an MS Word version with 6 cards on one sheet.
