There are many thousands of species of plant in the natural world. So how do we make sense of what we find? Meet one of our Museum curators responsible for part of our collection of non- flowering plants and discover what life's like working in the herbarium where they are kept. From the techniques of identifying species to documenting the vast array of specimens, it's a chance to find out why this is so important. With a current project mapping the UK's seaweeds, it's an opportunity to learn about the Museum's work on our very own coastline and what plants to look out for in the places we live.
