Botanical illustrations in the collection

Today I have been looking at illustrations in the Flora of Virginia and discovered that some of these illustrations were prepared using Massey Herbarium specimens. Lara Call Gastinger made this line drawing of American basswood (Tilia americana) using a loan of our material! If you have the Flora of Virginia, you can check out the Ilex collinaJuglans nigraJuglans cinerea, and Sanicula smallii illustrations to see more Massey Herbarium art!
