This may be an odd question, but is it easy to grow the
tropical duckweed, Lemna aequinoctialis?

I got about two of them into an aquarium I kept as a child. they came
in with some other aquatic plants...and in a short time it carpeted
the top and became a thick coating, so i transferred it to other
tanks, where it did the same. this was in the dark ages of fish
keeping, i had some kind of longish incandescent bulb and plain old
guppies. So I would say YES.

far too easy... it's a real pest here in aquatic plant containers!

Seriously, though, it needs fresh soft nutrient-rich water and light shade.
The strongest growth is in the water-trays of our tomatoes on drip
irrigation. The water is receiving fresh water and nutrients from
percolation of the pots every day.

This may be an odd question, but if someone wanted to ship
live specimens of Lemna, for research purposes, what is the
best way to do it to ensure survival?

DUCKWEED? float it in a zip lock baggie I would think, and tape it
shut for just in case.

It depends how much stuff, you can transport it in an usual jug :)

If you didn't want to worry about water sloshing around, just put it in with
some moist coarse sphagnum moss in a zip-lock type bag.

tape over the seam with wide clear plastic tape, the kind you have
lying around to repair greenhouse film. and double bag! i have
carried things in Zip Lock bags and did not have leakage problems.

Ah, great idea! When I travel I always carry some ice in a ziploc bag in my cooler, invariably it leaks water all over the place. I was surprise to find that ziploc does not care if they leak, only that they leak at an acceptable rate (!!).

In fact, they successfully sued another bag maker (I think it was glad bags) who had a commercial showing a little cartoon goldfish in a ziploc bag, sad because his bag was leaking- dripping water. The lawsuit was successful because ziploc showed that their bags, while leaky, did not drip that fast.

I never thought of taping the seams though, thanks! I will do that next time.

How 'bout a laboratory type plastic tube (eg. 15 or 50 ml Falcon or Corning centrifuge tube) with a plastic screw on cap. Not much water neede, just keep moist (or damp sphagnum, thanks Don), and then put in a crush-proof mailing box.

All replies seem good, some better, easier, and more practical. Hell, migrating ducks do it constantly on their feet don't they?
