Our special guest judge for this challenge is scientist Donald McClelland.

Donald is a botanist, a biologist who studies plants. He researches the evolution of plants in the nightshade family (Solanaceae), including naming new species. And he studies the biodiversity of plants on the tropical island of Montserrat in the West Indies.
