Making Sense of the World Around Us

Organising the way we understand nature helps us to create order. Knowing whether a plant is toxic or safe to eat shows just how vital this process can be to our survival. The rocks, minerals, plants and animals of Wales have been at the heart of this study over the last 200 years.

and organise specimens in order to develop and communicate our understanding of nature.
