Corridors and herbarium sheets

Posted on

Here are a couple shots behind the scenes today.  Above, a pile of herbarium sheets to be filed away.  These ones are Rubus specimens (brambles or blackberries) – there are hundreds of species around the world.

This is the East Corridor.  The herbarium sheets are stored in the green boxes (they had to green, for botany) and are sorted into geographical areas.  This section of the corridor holds European specimens.  The bench along the centre should be empty, for working space, but we had to empty out three large store rooms when dry rot was found in the floorboards, so our benches are currently storage areas.  Not for too much longer, I hope.
