Title: Arnold Arboretum: South Central China and Tibet: Hotspot of Diversity
Url: http://arboretum.harvard.edu/library/image-collection/south-central-c...
Publisher: Harvard University
Description: For well over one hundred years, The Arnold Arboretum has sent scientists to document and explore the various corners of Asia. In the early 1920s, the Arboretum sent an expedition that remained in the Hengduan Mountain region for three years. Upon their return, the expedition returned with all types of flora and fauna, including stuffed birds, seeds, and hundreds of photographic images. This online collection contains digitized materials from that notable expedition, and subsequent expeditions that have taken place in the 1990s and the 2000s. Visitors can dive right in by clicking on the "Search Expedition Collections" section where they can look at images of rock specimens, read reports from the expeditions, and browse interactive maps of the region. It's a tremendous collection, and one that will warrant several return visits.
