From the 19th to 22nd October, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew is taking part in WeDigBio 2017. Be part of this worldwide event involving volunteers transcribing natural history collections. Help Kew to unlock the information held in its herbarium cupboards and make it widely avilable to everyone around the world. Our onsite event on 20th October is fully booked however you can still take part remotely over the four days. Currently we are asking people to transcribe Syzygium, a genus from the Myrtaceae (myrtle family). There are about 1200-1800 species of Syzygium and its native range expands from Africa, through southern Asia to the Pacific. The most well-known species of Syzygium is the clove (Syzygium aromaticum). Help us to reveal the treasures of Kew's herbarium by taking part in this volunteer event.
