Fascination of Plants Day Herbarium Tour, Monday 20th May 12pm and 2pm (booking essential)
Come and see the botanical wonders housed at the University of Melbourne Herbarium on this 45 minute tour. The University of Melbourne Herbarium houses approximately 100,000 dried plant specimens, including fungi, mosses, liverworts, lichens, algae, ferns, gymnosperms and flowering plants. On this tour, Dr Gill Brown, curator of the collection, will show you plant specimens collected from as long ago as 1770, demonstrate the preservation and conservation methods used in herbaria and explain the significance of collections such as these, and how they are used by researchers and the general public in the present day.
Bookings (limited to 20 people per tour) can be made by contacting Gill Brown
Fascination of Plants Day is the initiative of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO). Each country has a national coordinator (a member of EPSO). In Australia, the national coordinator is the Education Manager for the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (ACPFG).
