The botany collection in the Museum consists of almost 50,000 specimens of plants and fungal specimens, most of them belong to terrestrial habitats, such as meadows and forests. However, aquatic plants are severely underrepresented in the collection of the Museum. All this is due to the fact that Diana, the curator of botany, avoided collecting aquatic plants because of her fear of getting booty turbid water. She will tell how she overcame her aversion to her legs being wet in pursuit of water samples of plants for the collection.
