Plant hardiness and heat tolerance span a range of zones and are thus specified with a description like "Zones 06a-09b" or "AHS 06-09". The drop-down combo-boxes used to specify and display climate zones allow you to enter descriptions just like this.
Here's what the results will look like:

There are six climate fields that allow multiple codes:

Customizing your categories
Setting default values for new specimen records
Using codes as shortcuts in the category fields
Categories that allow free-form data entry
