Linnean Lens | Charles Darwin's Vasculum



Like many botanists of his time, Charles Darwin owned a vasculum – an oblong tin box in which to put specimens during field work, and which he took along on his voyage on the Beagle.

Former Librarian of the Meise Botanic Garden, Régine Fabri, reveals the long fascinating history of the vasculum, while Glenn Benson talks about Darwin’s, one of the highlights of the Linnean Society’s artefact collection.
