About This Show
Botanica Caroliniana is an inter-institutional, inter-disciplinary collaborative project in research, teaching, and publication, that focuses on the botany of the Carolinas from their earliest exploration by Europeans to living plants under curation and in the wild today. Two of the principal researchers in the project, Patrick McMillan, Director of the South Carolina Botanical Garden at Clemson University; and Amy Hackney Blackwell, researcher in Plant and Environmental Science at Clemson University, join Dr. Edgar to talk about the first steps in creating one part of the project, an on-line digital library of specimens in the herbarium of 18th century naturalist and illustrator, Mark Catesby.
