Images, Images and More Images!

Thanks for Forest Starr for the heads up on these resources.

1)    From Hawaii Ecosystems at Risk (HEAR) via SmugMug:

High-resolution scans of slides from Betsy H. Gagne’s “Ecosystems”
notebook are now available, including historical images of Hawaiian ecosystems and conservation activities as early as the 1970s.

These ecosystem images join existing Betsy Gagne galleries on Bogs and Miconia.

Philip Thomas from HEAR provides access to these wonderful collections!

2)    The University of Hawaii Virtual Museum has posted a number of wonderful photo sets on flickr.

scans of the plates from Isabella Sinclair’s Indigenous Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands – http://www.flickr.com/photos/uhmuseum/sets/72157621900605567/

and, the plants photos from the Charles H. Lamoureux Natural History Collection – http://www.flickr.com/photos/uhmuseum/sets/72157622531415852/

Thanks to Michael Thomas for these Web pages!

While there is much more to explore on both of these sites, I also want to point out that there are many, many wonderful photos of plants and animals in Hawaii available from the Forest Starr and Kim Starr Web site at:
