Rose, cacti, 1909 - 1917

About the Project

This field book contains Joseph Nelson Rose’s (1862-1928) notes of cacti from the American West, the Carolinas and Florida, Cuba, Haiti and Brazil spanning the years 1909-1916. The notes reflect his research and his curatorial roles at the United States National Herbarium. Divided into sections, the field book identifies plants within the US National Herbarium’s collections by scientific name, location and names of individuals associated with the specimens. The third section includes specimens collected by Rose and two colleagues. Help us transcribe the notes of a man who participated in extensive explorations in the American tropics and the Andes Mountains of South America, writing papers on systematic botany, Apiaceae and several groups of succulents.
