28(1) Bulletin published

25 April 2016

In the spring issue of the Bulletin our curator of art discusses Great Expectations, the current exhibition that explores the different phases of plant development. Our archivist reports that Constantine J. Alexopoulos' collection of over 700 color slime mold slides has been digitized and soon will be available on our Web site. Our assistant librarian writes about Peter Forsskål, a naturalist who also called for freedom of the press in Sweden. We invite everyone to attend Open House 2016 and provide the schedule of events.
