Botany of Empire Online Exhibit

The long eighteenth century saw widespread exploration and a tremendous increase in the traffic in botanical specimens: the potentially profitable natural resources of far-flung colonies. The Dumbarton Oaks 2013 symposium, “Botany of Empire in the Long Eighteenth Century,” which this online exhibit accompanies, explores this botanical discovery and exchange, and the publications and illustrations that documented it.
