trefwoorden: UK- natuur - pre-historie
A refuge for some of the rarest UK examples of "living archaeology" is being provided by Kew Gardens (Britain's Royal Botanic Gardens).
The reserve - for mosses, liverworts, lichens and filmy ferns - is at Wakehurst Place, Kew's country branch south of London.
It will be opened by the naturalist Dr Francis Rose, after whom it is named.
Some of the species it shelters may be millions of years old.
