Floral prints

    In 1985, a group of botanists from the University of Oxford studied the flora of the Seychelles. Their artist, Rosemary Wise, spent the next ten years painting these unusual and threatened plants. Her work, including Nepenthes pervillei (above), can be found in AFragile Eden: Portraits of the Endemic Flowering Plants of the Granitic Seychelles (Princeton University Press, $75).
