The herbarium of the Manchester Museum houses one of the most extensive collections of preserved plants in the UK, with around 1 million herbarium sheets. These represent an archive of information on biodiversity, and a record of the natural environment over the last 200 years.  This tour presents the opportunity to find out more about the herbarium with a member of the Museum’s staff.

There is no charge for this walk. Numbers will be limited to 15 people, so please register in advance. You can do this at any time before the Congress by emailing tours@ichstm2013.com with your details; or you can sign up in person at the Congress Events Desk.
