Losing Paradise: Endangered Plants Here and Around the World

August 14, 2010 – December 12, 2010

Natural History Museum
10th and Constitution Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: 1st Floor, West Wing, Special Exhibit Gallery (near Mammals)

This exhibition features 45 compelling botanical illustrations by members of the American Society of Botanical Artists to convey the vital importance of plant conservation. Our planet's rich diversity of plant life is at risk; more than 20 percent of the world's flora is threatened with extinction. Scientists are racing to gather information on known plants before they disappear forever -- with botanical illustrators working alongside them to capture plant diversity in their artworks for future generations.
