Related Research: Ludwig Preiss in Australia

Anna Haebich, one of the participants at our workshop in October 2020, was recently a guest on ABC’s radio programme Late Night Live, talking about her work on German endeavors in Australian colonial natural history collections. Her research focuses on Johann August Ludwig Preiss (1838-1842), “the first professional botanist to collect systematically in the Colony of Western Australia from 1838 to 1842” (Haebich “Friday essay”).

To find out more about this related research project, check out Anna Haebich’s conversation with Phil Adams and her article “Friday essay: the forgotten German botanist who took 200,000 Australian plants to Europe”, linked below.
