OSU opens Brazilian Nature Exhibition on Feb. 27
Date:2/17/2012

So Paulo Research Foundation, Fapesp, and Ohio State University will inaugurate on February 27 at The Ohio Union Gallery, the exhibition Brazilian Nature Mystery and Destiny, which addresses the knowledge about the Brazilian biodiversity. Promoted in partnership with Ohio State Innovation Group, the exhibition will be open to the public until March 30.

The opening ceremony will be attended by Dr. Daniel Janies, Associate Professor of the College of Medicine, Dr. Caroline Whitacre, Vice President for Research and Paulo Sotero, Director of Brazil Institute at Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington DC.

To celebrate the opening of this exhibit, the Ohio State Innovation Group for Global Infectious Disease Research is holding a seminar on "Brazilian Nature and Our Scientific Partnerships" on Monday, February 27 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. in the West Ballroom of the Ohio Union. The seminar, which will touch on biomedicine, biodiversity, bioenergy and educational partnerships, will focus on research of mutual interest to the United States and Brazil.

The exhibition has as its main reference the Flora brasiliensis, the work of the German botanist Carl Philipp von Martius (1794-1868), that even 171 years after his first published volume remains the most comprehensive survey of the flora.

Carlos Henrique de Brito Cruz, scientific director of FAPESP, says: "It is important to show that Brazil is aware of the biodiversity in a sophisticated way, which is to treat it as an object of research programs well organized and well prepared that produce results with global impact."

With reproductions of images, illustrations and explanatory texts, the 37 panels that make up the exhibition were designed based on data from three projects supported by FAPESP: Flora brasiliensis Online and Revisited, Phanerogamous Flora of the State of So Paulo and the Biota-FAPESP Program.
