Livingstone's Zambezi Expedition
I was honored to present a poster featuring the JSTOR Labs-JSTOR Plants project, Livingstone’s Zambezi Expedition, as part of the 15th Smithsonian Botanical Symposium on May 19, 2017. With the theme, “Exploring the Natural World: Plants, People and Places,” the symposium featured a range of fascinating presentations on the history of botanical exploration (you can read more about the symposium here). Given the Symposium’s focus, this was a perfect venue to share the work we did to bring together specimens and historical materials in a new way and get feedback from scholars and teachers actively working in this field. Download the poster here and, as always, please contact us if you would like to share any comments or questions about the project.
