A Luxuriance of Croton! - complete
About the Project
Join us in transcribing the, yes, you guessed it, Croton, an extensive flowering genus fom the Euphorbiaceae, or Spurge, family. Here's another interesting fact: According to Wikipedia, in the Amazon the red latex from the species Croton lechleri, known as Sangre de Drago (Dragon's blood), is used as a "liquid bandage", as well as for other medicinal purposes, by native peoples.
Please contact Sylvia Orli, Department of Botany, for any questions or comments about the transcriptions and thanks to all of you for your help!
