Beginning September 7, BRIT will present Kochi Makino: An Amazing Botanical Garden in Japan, an exhibition tracing the strategic growth of one of Japanís premier botanical gardens. The exhibit is free to the public and will provide audiences with an interesting view of how the Makino Botanical Garden transformed itself from flower garden into an internationally respected botanical research organization during the last decade. Visitors will be introduced to Makino through a brief history and will learn how Makino botanists collect, document, and preserve plant knowledge. Two special sections will highlight Makinoís international and medicinal plant research activities showing its herbarium, library, and laboratories. The exhibit includes plant specimens, plant photos, rare books, and other memorabilia. Also shown is a portion of Makinoís collection of 16th and 17th Century botanical illustrations.
