Three families in the Smithsonian Institution's Catalog of
Botanical Illustrations are now available on the Web at:
The Department of Botany has created a database of the more
than 3000 botanical illustrations curated by the
department's scientific illustrator, Alice Tangerini. As
part of a long-term project to make an on-line illustrated
catalog of these illustrations available for our staff and
others needing access to this information, we are pleased to
offer nearly 500 images in the three families that have been
completed: Bromeliaceae, Cactaceae, and Melastomataceae. The
catalog entries include links to the images and biographical
information about the artists. Illustrations based on
botanical type specimens have a link to the Type Specimen
Register of the U.S. National Herbarium which resides on our
Gopher server.
