Black-and-white photographs of the Amazon River and adjacent regions -- including portraits of people, landscapes, and plants -- taken in the field in the 1940s by Dr. Richard Evans Schultes bring together natural history science and photographic art. Schultes was one of the most important ethnobotanists of the 20th century.
