Carpological collection

As a supplement to our herbarium sheets we also hold a 'carpological' collection. This is essentially made up of seed and fruit, as well as any plant parts which are too large to be incorporated into the main collection as a standard herbarium sheet. Many of these cross reference with the herbarium sheets and help to enrich the preserved collection.
