"Univalve shells of the tropical seas." ⁣ ⁣ #SciArt from "The Shell Book" (1908) by Julia Ellen Rogers, which was produced as a popular guide to living mollusks, covering both native (to North America) and foreign families. Rogers studied live specimens at the New York Aquarium and museum specimens at the American Museum of Natural History as part of her research for this work. The Museum specimens were used to create the plates from the work, made mostly from photographs by A.R. Dugmore.⁣ ⁣ Contributed in #BHLib thanks to the Gerstein Science Information Centre @gersteinlibrary of the University of Toronto Libraries @uoftlibraries.

Fans de botanique ? Cette nouvelle devrait vous réjouir ! Plus de 150.000 archives d’illustrations de faune et de flore sont à présent téléchargeables gratuitement !

La Bibliothèque du patrimoine de la biodiversité (Biodiversity Heritage Library) a mis en ligne gratuitement plus de 150.000 illustrations d’animaux, de plantes et autres spécimens rares. Ces images d’archives sont toutes tirées d’ouvrages, de documents historiques et d’études scientifiques datant parfois du XVe siècle.

On peut par exemple télécharger un guide destiné aux apprentis taxidermistes, des aquarelles de fleurs indigènes hawaïennes ou encore des lithographies d’animaux sauvages…

En donnant un accès total et gratuit à ces documents historiques, la Bibliothèque du patrimoine de la biodiversité espère pouvoir sensibiliser un maximum de personnes à la faune, la flore et à l’impact que la crise climatique a sur la nature.

Pour faire vos recherches sur le site de la bibliothèque, vous pouvez utiliser l’option de recherche avancée afin de trouver des documents et illustrations sur une espèce de plantes en particulier. Vous pourrez par exemple découvrir des illustrations représentant la Belgique horticole, des photos de la flore nordique ou encore la description zoologique et anatomique des céphalopodes.

Un compte Instagram et Flickr ont également été créés pour mettre en avant ces illustrations uniques.

Happy #FishyFriday! In the 1940s, ichthyologist Mary Margaret Smith and her husband, JLB Smith, began work on an authoritative book on South African fish. Lacking suitable illustrations, Mary Margaret Smith took on the mammoth task of illustrating the work herself. It was published in 1949 as "The Sea Fishes of Southern Africa".⁣ ⁣ This #SciArt represents some of Mary Margaret Smith's work from this title. The image depicts: (fig. 389) Marbled dragonet (Synchiropus marmoratus); (fig. 771) Natal wrasse (Anchichoerops natalensis); (fig. 776a) Wrasse (Choerodon gymnogenys); (fig. 806) Clown coris (Coris aygula); (fig. 923a) Brick goby (Priolepis inhaca); (fig. 935a) Noble goby (Priolepis eugenius ).⁣ ⁣ This work has been digitized in #BHLib with permission from the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (CC-BY-NC-SA) by #Cornell University Library, Albert R. Mann Library (@mannlibrary @cornell_library).

We're #BugginOut over all these #beetles! We're excited to join in on this month's #LibrariesOfInstagram challenge sponsored by @SutroLibrary, and we will be sharing all sorts of wonderfully diverse #arthropods from the #insect world. This week , we're starting with the largest...largest order, that is. Beetles (order Coleoptera) are the largest group of animals on earth, representing around 25% of all described animal species. . . Another #FunFact for this month's @iglibraries theme — While most insects are colloquially referred to as bugs, only members of the order Hemiptera are "true bugs". . . This virtual specimen drawer comes from "Musée Entomologique Illustré", T.1 (1876), edited by J. Rothschild. Contributed for digitization in #BHLib by #SmithsonianLibraries (@silibraries).
