About this book

Language: German

Travel with Darwin to the Galapagos Islands, with Humbold to the Orinoco River basin or with Livingstone in the heart of Africa – welcome to the world of the great naturalists! They all were enthusiastic about the flora of the newly discovered lands, and collected and described previously unknown species and preserved them in carefully designed plant collections. Their herbaria testify to the spirit of discovery and a fascination with the new and unknown in nature. Das Herbarium der Entdecker invites you to join the naturalists on their trips to get to know their botanical knowledge and thanks to large-format photographs have a look at their valuable plant collections. Das Herbarium der Entdecker depicts 80 major herbaria of the world, especially the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, London.

Summary in German:
Mit Darwin unterwegs auf den Galapagos-Inseln, mit Humboldt im Dschungel des Orinoco-Beckens oder mit Livingstone im Herzen Afrikas – willkommen in der Welt der großen Naturforscher! Sie alle begeisterten sich für die Flora der neu entdeckten Länder, sammelten und beschrieben bislang unbekannte Arten und konservierten sie in sorgfältig gestalteten Pflanzensammlungen. Diese Herbarien sind heute Zeugnisse spektakulärer und beschwerlicher Reisen, zeugen vom Entdeckergeist der Forscher und ihrer Faszination für das Neue und Unbekannte in der Natur fremder Länder. Das Herbarium der Entdecker lädt dazu ein, die Naturforscher auf ihren Reisen zu begleiten, ihre botanischen Erkenntnisse kennenzulernen und dank großformatiger Fotografien einen Blick in ihre wertvollen Herbarien zu werfen. Die 80 abgebildeten Blätter stammen aus bedeutenden Herbarien der Welt, vor allem den Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, London.
