Supporting the conservation of Bermuda's native plants

by: Shayla Ellick, UK Overseas Territories team blog

Using Kew's historic botanical specimens, Shayla Ellick has spent a undergraduate sandwich-placement year finding out about the 600 plant species found on the UK Overseas Territory(UKOT) of Bermuda.  Combining digital high resolution images of the preserved plant specimens with information about the plants gathered from Kew's libraries and online botanical databases, she has added over 700 specimens to the UKOTs' Online Herbarium, to provide an invaluable conservation resource for the island.
