Biodiversity Heritage Library Exhibition: Latino Natural History

From the Biodiversity Heritage Library comes this online exhibition dedicated to prominent Latino/a natural scientists and their work. On this exhibit's homepage, visitors are invited to explore exhibition materials by People of Note, which highlights nine individuals. These individuals include Ynes Mexia, a Mexican-American plant collector who worked with Stanford University botanist Roxana Stinchfield Harris and helped collect over 500 plant species. Another is Jose Zeledon, a Costa Rican ornithologist who identified numerous birds in the country. For each featured individual, visitors can check out a timeline of their lives, featured images, and digitized books from the Biodiversity Heritage Collection (available via the Find Me in Books Link). In addition to exploring this collection by individuals, visitors are invited to browse by Country or Language of featured material or explore material via an interactive timeline. This exhibition is available in both English and Spanish.
