Pressed for Time – Crowdfunding to tackle gobal environmental issues

Having access to digitised plant samples is such an important part of international plantscience research tackling global environmental issues.

The University of Oxford is crowdfunding to bring 400 years of preserved plants into the digital age, focusing on the legume specimen (“peas and beans”) – an important food source and vital for researchers addressing key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals such as Zero Hunger, Good Health, Climate Action and Life on Land.

There are a lot of samples and your contribution can make a vital difference: a donation of £10 will help to digitise five samples!
