The Leguminosae are one of the largest families of flowering plants, with the largest number of Australian specimens in our collections. There are many economcally important species including pulses and beans. This expedition includes the last of our specimens.
Many of our specimens are over 100 years old and provide some of the first records for species in Australia.
We have now digitised all our Australian flowering plant specimens and need your help to unlock the data they hold for use by researchers around the globe.
The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s extensive Herbarium numbers nearly three million specimens representing half to two thirds of the world's flora. It is considered a leading botanical collection,
and every year many researchers from around the world visit to study our specimens.
