Description: While traveling through distant (and not-so-distant) lands for the primary purpose of discovering new plant species may not seem like everyone's cup of tea, this fine website pays homage to those very intrepid souls who devoted to their life to that pursuit. The site is not solely devoted to "plant explorers", although visitors will want to begin by browsing through the sections that introduce some of the key figures in the field. Visitors will be introduced to Joseph Banks, who traveled with Captain James Cook around the world and Joseph Hooker, who traversed the Himalayas collecting and identifying various plant species. Illustrated with photographs and drawings, these profiles are quite welcome, as are the feature articles on the site, which include contemporary material on the creation of the Scottish Plant Collectors' Garden in Pitlochry, Scotland, and the search for the Hers Juliana Lilac by one Freek Vrugtman, who himself is the International Registrar of Lilacs. For those who may find themselves wanting to pay a visit to a botanic garden after visiting this website, the site also includes a page that lists some of the most prominent botanical gardens across the globe.
