Abstract Fresh or frozen tissue is usually used as a source of DNA for PCR and RAPD analysis. We have found that leaves can be allowed to dry at room temperature before extraction of DNA. Heating the leaves or microwave drying resulted in poor recovery of DNA. Storage of fresh leaves in paper envelopes in the laboratory was the most successful approach. This allowed the tissue to dry out over a period of several days and DNA could be extracted at any time, providing a convenient method for the collection and analysis of field material. DNA from leaves stored for four months at room temperature was suitable for PCR analysis.
