The 18th and 19th centuries saw an explosion of invention and innovation in medicine, engineering, chemistry, and the sciences. 
Perhaps lesser known, but just as important were the advances made in botany through the exploration of the flora of the “New World.”
During this period of exploration, plants and trees from North and South America made their way around the world, transforming landscapes forever. The names of some of these botanical explorers would be honored in museum galleries, schools, and in the very “botanical” names of the plants and trees.
