The wild plants herbarium is a collection of preserved plants that are stored, catalogued, and arranged systematically in order to identify and study plant taxonomy of the flora of Egypt and the Saint Katherine Protected Area in particular. This is a vital reference in identifying plants and it serves as a cross between a museum of priceless artifacts and source of information of geographic distribution, chemical composition, time of flowering, and characteristics. Preserved plant specimens can be used to provide samples of DNA and to validate scientific observations. A herbarium is therefore of immense practical use and of fundamental importance to science.
Please contact to get information on the samples of geographic distribution.
