Joseph Banks and Kew Gardens
Botanists are scientists who study plants, including flowering plants and plant like things such as moss and seaweed. Botany is the scientific study of plants including their growth, structure and uses.
Joseph Banks was a famous English botanist who was born in 1743. He travelled all over the world collecting a large number of plants and animal specimens, before settling in London where he built a huge library and herbarium. In 1778 he became the director of Kew Gardens which became one of the best botanical gardens in the world. His collection of plants and insects is now held at the museum in Kew, but perhaps the greatest things he did was to exchange so many species of plants between the UK and the rest of the world.
The Kew Gardens museum has close to a hundred thousand species of plant and new ones are continually being added when new species are discovered. Researchers at Kew also work with people across the world on the Useful Plants Project so that people living in local communities can help plants in their local area thrive and make the best use of them.
1. Carry out your own research to find more facts about Joseph Banks and Kew Gardens. What is the most interesting fact you can find? Which plants did he bring into the UK? www.famousscientists.org
2. Make a list of as many things you can think of that we utilise plants for, e.g. food, medicines etc.
3. Imagine a friendly alien from the planet Zog has landed on Earth and tells you that the people who live on Zog are starving. The alien needs to know which plants are eaten here on Earth so that seeds can be taken back to Zog to provide food.
You can help the alien by listing: All the fruits, vegetables, cereals and drinks you can think of, the herbs and spices which are made from plants and any plants that are grown as food for animals.
NOW …. 1. Pick three items from your list – only use one item from each list.
2. Write a report for the alien which describes:
Each item of food – what it looks like, colour, shape, smell etc
· How the relevant plant grows
· The climate it grows best in
· How the food is harvested
· How the seeds of the plant are collected.
· You can draw diagrams to explain your report.
