Cleofe Calderon - Brazil, 1976, Vol. 3
About the Project
While Argentina-born botanist Cleofe Calderon conducted field work across Central and South America, Brazil was at the heart and soul of her research. Why? Brazil was where, in 1976, she re-discovered a species of bamboo called Anomochloa that hadn't been seen in over 90 years. In her lifetime, Calderon also named 18 new species of grasses, and her work is still being used to help researchers understand grass evolution.
Help us continue to make her work accessible to present-day scientists by transcribing her field notebook from Brazil in 1976--the same year she made her bamboo discovery!
