Naturalis Biodiversity Center

On the 18th November 2017 there is an innovative Species Discovery Workshop in Leiden to describe new plant species to science. Following intensive taxonomic work over the last 24 months many new trees species have been discovered and piles of specimens have been sorted in the herbarium at Naturalis Biodiversity Center ready to be described and named. The workshop aims to engage non-taxonomists in taxonomy and the process behind how species are described. Each participant will be a co-author on the subsequent publication. No experience is necessary just a passion for biodiversity!
