The Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh is a library of pressed and preserved plants. But it's no dead or dusty place. In fact, it's at the forefront of describing and recording species that are new to science. An average of one a week - whether they're discovered in the field, or in their own files. I reported for BBC Radio Scotland's "Good Morning Scotland" programme.
