Opinion

From Library Staff

Maria Merian loved art and insects and practiced both in her life back in the 17th century.

A gorgeously illustrated book about naturalist Maria Merian who loved studying butterflies and moths and contributed to our understanding of their life cycles.

This is a terrific biography about a woman scientist living in Germany in the 1600's. Maria Merian changed scientific thinking by recording information about insects and painting intricate images of butterflies, moths and caterpillars. For a shorter, but also wonderful story of her life, read "Summer Birds: The Butterflies of Meria Merian" by Margarita Engle and illustrated by Julie Paschkis.
