Initially published in 1968 in limited release by the Smithsonian’s then Office of Ecology, this checklist was based on botanist Daniel Higman’s exploration of plant species found on three tracts of Smithsonian-owned land near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland that represented a broad spectrum of ecological systems. As part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), this first-known SERC publication has been updated by editors Dennis Whigham, Geoffrey Parker, and Olav Oftedal and republished with funding from the Smithsonian’s Atherton Seidell Grant Program for the Dissemination of Previously Published Scientific Research.
This publication presents the proceedings of the Summit on the Museum Preservation Environment, held at the Smithsonian Institution in March 2013.
This is the latest publication of Smithsonian Plant Collections from Guyana, this time featuring the collector's notes from botanist Terry Henkel's expeditions. Includes maps, habitat descriptions, assisting collectors, and cross-referenced lists of localities, collection numbers, and taxa, plus other relevant data.
