52 Museums – this week on Instagram

The Reading University Museums and Collections are running the 52Museums account on Instagram this week.  We are theming entries around the alphabet and will be showcasing artefacts from A to Z. The Herbarium is one of those collections and so far we have letter ‘C’ for Coco-de-Mer and letter ‘H’ for Holotype.  We’ve illustrated this with Mapania multiflora, a new species of sedge discovered as part of the research of Zinnirah Shabdin while conducting her PhD at Reading.
