Euphoric for Euphorbia Set 2!

About the Project

Join us in transcribing the Euphorbiaceae, or Spurge, family, an extensive flowering family. In this group, we find plants from the genus Euphorbia, for which the family Euphorbiaceae was named. The botanical name Euphorbia derives from Euphorbos, the Greek physician of king Iuba (or Juba) II of Numidia (52–50 BC – 23 AD). Euphorbos wrote that one of the cactus-like Euphorbias was a powerful laxative.

Please contact Sylvia Orli, Department of Botany, or tweet us at @sylviaorli @TranscribeSI for any questions or comments about the transcriptions.
