Most of us love art and most of us love to see beautiful plants.  So, what happens when these two passions are combined for the purpose of scientific illustration?  In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Department of Plant Biology, an exhibit at Mann Library showcases the work of six botanical illustrators—Marion Wrench Roosa, Marion Ruff Sheehan, Elfriede Abbe, Mitsu Nakayama, Barbara Bernstein and Bente Starcke King—whose precise and beautiful work has contributed greatly to the department’s scientific and educational mission during the past century.

The exhibit is on view through November 2013.
