Abstract

Our digitally connected world is profoundly image led yet the practice of botanical image making, and types of image commissioned is little changed in several hundred years. This is in contrast to advances in botanical science and demands placed on the profession.
Using examples from the Fritillaria Icones Project this lecture looks at structuring images for online use. Also, wider uses within botanical science and in science communication.
