Exhibit on biodiversity

One of the activities slated for the Japan-Brazil Symposium will be the March 14 opening of the 'Brazilian Nature' exhibit in the Espao Cultural at the Embassy of Brazil in Tokyo. Result of a partnership between FAPESP and the Berlin Botanical Museum, the exhibit displays the documentation of German botanist Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius (1794-1868) in his work Flora brasiliensis, which, 172 years after its first publication, still stands as the most complete survey of Brazilian flora ever made.

The botanist's work also led to the project Flora Brasiliensis On-line and Revisted' that includes an updated nomenclature of von Martius' original work along with recent information and illustrations of species described after the initial publication. The exhibit also presents a comparison of the 19th century drawings and current photographs of plants and biomes, and depicts some of the findings of research performed under the scope of the project 'Phanerogamic Flora of the state of So Paulo' and the BIOTA-FAPESP program on biodiversity, which for 13 years has conducted research for the description, conservation, recovery and sustainable use of the biodiversity.

Conceived on the basis of data obtained through these three projects sponsored by FAPESP, the exhibit features 37 panels with reproductions of prints and illustrations along with explanatory text. The sample that will travel to Tokyo has already been viewed in Madrid and Salamanca
