Although interest in botanical research can be traced back as far as the Neolithic times, the 19th century saw a real change in the way science corresponded knowledge. With the rise of specialist journals and schools-of-thoughts outside traditional circles questioning accepted theories and being given a chance to publish their findings, the great era of plant specification expanded. As a result, displaying real life studies of a botanical nature, such as the one depicted here, were considered a testament to ones cultural understanding as much as a demonstration of ones Darwinian interests in science and evolution.
