Cleofé Calderón - Brasil 1977, 1
About the Project
Field notes or movie set? In these notes by Cleofé Calderón, the agrostologist not only details the specimens she collected, but she also paints a lovely scene of her surroundings. In 1977, Calderón explored grasses near the the Pico das Almas in Bahia, Brazil, where she describes bamboo growing near the edge of the Rio de Contas. Through her meticulous note taking, transcribers will be able to picture the vibrant reds and yellows of the scene. Join a group of volunpeers in helping make Calderón’s scientific contributions and legacy even more available to researchers. One quick note: Calderón’s handwriting is part of this challenge, but you can see how past volunpeers have tackled her handwriting in previous projects.
