This delightful and enticing book provides a visual and engaging introduction to biocultural curation. It covers a diverse range of topics, from specimen curation to the use of specimens in conservation and education, drawing on interesting examples from fields such as botany, zoology and archaeology.

In each section there are case studies related to real collections and many beautiful full colour photographs, each of which adds flavour to the text and brings the subject alive. As a practical guide, the book is also an impressive scholarly work with each chapter containing a wealth of further reading and web links.
