Representatives of the three projects assisted the compilation of the content of the show, which was successfully presented at the Museum of the Botanical Garden in Berlin in 2008, the Haus der Wissenschaft at Leipzig University, in Bremen in 2009, the Woodrow Wilson Center (Washington) in 2011 and currently at the Museum of the University of Heidelberg, Germany, until June 29.
Exhibition in three parts
The design of the Flora brasiliensis Online and Revisited, which corresponds to the first part of the exhibition, represents a continuity to the work of Martius, who had his last volume published after the author's death in 1906.
In 2006, the project has made available on the Internet the full version of the work of Martius, with 10,207 pages with text descriptions of nearly 23,000 species and nearly 4,000 illustrations. The Flora brasiliensis Online and Revisited includes the update of the nomenclature used in the original work of Martius and the inclusion of species described after its publication, with new information and recent pictures.
The work was funded by a partnership between FAPESP, the Vitae Foundation and Natura Cosmetics and executed by the Reference Center on Environmental Information (Cria), located at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp) and the Missouri Botanical Garden, United States. The Flora brasiliensis Online is available in http://florabrasiliens
