Carl von Martius:
discovering tropical biodiversity


Between 1817 and 1820, Bavarian botanist, Carl von Martius, sets off to discover Brazil, thus becoming the first naturalist to describe the important plant diversity of the Amazon forest.
During his expedition, Martius collected some 6000 plants which, upon his return to Europe, were then described and illustrated in the most beautiful scientific volumes of that time.
This exhibition retraces the legendary journey of this explorer and highlights his passion for the most emblematic family of the tropical plants: the palm trees. It also reveals the scientific links that Martius maintained with some of the 19th century most renowned botanists in Geneva.
Beautiful sheets are displayed, as well as original corresponences belonging to the extremly rich CJBG's Library collection.
