Assistant Director of Publications
This website was created by the staff of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, with graphic design assistance from HindSite Interactive, Inc. and writing and editorial assistance from Ms. Mary Shuford.
We sincerely thank NTBG Trustee Peter S. Goltra for his encouragement and support of the overall website project and for his vision and hard work that led to the creation of the Meet the Plants component.
In addition to the many staff members who contributed to the content, we would like to acknowledge Senior Research Botanist and Director of Science Dr. David H. Lorence for his review of botanical nomenclature and additional assistance with the Meet the Plants component.
Lastly, we would like to thank those photographers who granted permission to use images from their personal collections. These images convey the fascinating colors, shapes, and textures that define our gardens.
