This is a picture of a variety of foliage which I picked while out on walk. Once completely dried, these parts of plants can be passed down for generations to be studied by future scientists.
The idea here is to help preserve and protect the foliage of the future. If any of these plants shown here become extinct, future scientists will be able to study these dried plants and find possible reasons why this may have happened.
The study of these plants could help save a plant species from going extinct, because scientist can note the changes in the plants between the time periods.
The study of all of these plants could also help scientists find plants elsewhere in the world that might be relocated to this region and have a chance to survive and thrive here.
I hope that future generations can enjoy the same plants on their walks.
