It consists of a working space, lounge, library and resting area. This hub can be built up gradually as an outcome of the activities taking place within it, and so can start out being quite sparse, with just the bare essentials for fieldwork – a few maps and other research materials. Over the course of weeks or months the lab can evolve into a physical archive of patabotanical works and activities.
