The presentation gives a brief introduction to the collecting of plant material for Herbarium Sheet preparation.

A brief history of plant taxonomy and the history of 'key' personalities was intriguing. Several interesting occurrences for the description of Australian plants was enlightening for us all.
John has been able to capture the imagination and provide many good reasons to value this work and keep it going in the New England area.
