"As botanist at the U.S. Botanic Garden, my skills in plant biology and other related sciences come into play each day to help inform the public about the proper naming of plants. It's important to be accurate because my signs are read by visitors every single day!" —Kyle Wallick, Botanist, United States Botanic Garden.
