The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-1806 is one of the great stories of exploration in America. Few of the scientific specimens collected by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark survive, except for hundreds of pressed plants in The Academy of Natural Sciences.
Digital images show each plant in more detail than ever before. Browse through the collection, plant by plant. Read the labels written by Meriwether Lewis in the field between 1804 and 1806. Refer to facsimile reprints of the original records and colored engravings of Lewis's gatherings as published in the first comprehensive catalogue of American plants by Frederick Pursh in 1813. Read facsimile reprints of important 19th century publications about the plants.
Scientific descriptions and historical comments by Lewis & Clark scholars bring the herbarium completely up to date for the first time in a century. Comprehensive indexes provide guides to places and dates of collection common names, hundreds of scientific names, and digital illustrations.
This CD includes new information about the Lewis & Clark Herbarium and its history. Images, texts, and indexes are hyperlinked for ease of use. Botanists, historians, and Lewis & Clark aficionados alike will find this CD a unique resource.
