					Template for Submission of New trait or modification of exiting trait
This sheet is for submission of details for a few traits in parallel columns. Use one column C,D .., for each new or modified trait
For submission of details for many traits, use the Sheet titled Template for serial sumbission.
For modifications to the trait list with specified Trait ID you only need to give new /changed values. Eg a new scale or method.
You can find Trait IDs for existing traits in the lists on "Trait Dictionaries for Fieldbook Development" at http://mbp.generationcp.org

Template for Submission of New trait or modification of exiting trait
This sheet is for submission of details for a many traits by rows. Use one row for each new or modified trait
For submission of details for a few traits, it might be more convenient to use the sheet titled Template for Trait Details.
For modifications to the trait list with specified Trait ID you only need to give new /changed values. Eg a new scale or metho
You can find Trait IDs for existing traits in the lists on "Trait Dictionaries for Fieldbook Development" at http://mbp.generatio
