The Wardian case is a portable airtight, glass-lined greenhouse that was developed by Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward (1791-1868) for the transportation of plants. The Wardian case revolutionised botany in the 19th century, allowing live plants to be transported across the globe. The airtight design meant that that plants stored inside were protected from smoke and pollution.
