Default Plant Explorers FYI Rainy Day or Winter day joys

4. PlantExplorers.com
http://www.plantexplorers.com

While traveling through distant (and not-so-distant) lands for the
primary purpose of discovering new plant species may not seem like
everyone?s cup of tea, this fine website pays homage to those very
intrepid souls who devoted to their life to that pursuit. The site is
not solely devoted to ?plant explorers?, although visitors will want to
begin by browsing through the sections that introduce some of the key
figures in the field. Visitors will be introduced to Joseph Banks, who
traveled with Captain James Cook around the world and Joseph Hooker, who
traversed the Himalayas collecting and identifying various plant
species. Illustrated with photographs and drawings, these profiles are
quite welcome, as are the feature articles on the site, which include
contemporary material on the creation of the
Scottish Plant Collectors? Garden in Pitlochry, Scotland, and the search
for the Hers? Juliana Lilac by one Freek Vrugtman, who himself is the
International Registrar of Lilacs. For those who may find themselves
wanting to pay a visit to a botanic garden after visiting this website,
the site also includes a page that lists some of the most prominent
botanical gardens across the globe. [KMG]
