Feast your eyes on stunning, macro-photographic studies of seeds and fruits from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Herbarium Collection.

The result of months spent searching through RBGE’s specimens, Levon Biss captures the breath-taking details of the world of carpology, the study of seeds and fruits. Each image reveals minute features, textures and shapes that are normally invisible to the naked eye, providing a unique insight into this crucial resource for botanical science, and striking and bizarre adaptations that have evolved over thousands of years.
