Google Doodle Celebrating Ynés Mexía:
Google Doodle published in honor of Mexican-American botanist and explorer Ynes Mexía, who studied everything from a remote volcano on the border of Colombia and Ecuador to poisonous berries, earthquakes, bogs. Ynés Mexía’s adventurous life were done “all for the sake of botanical discoveries,” Google wrote with the Google Doodle. “We started on the long journey back,” Mexía expressed by writing after collecting wax palm samples, “very tired, very hot, very dirty, but very happy.”
On this day in 1925, Ynés Mexía, who was born in Washington D.C. in 1870, embarked on Mexía’s first plant collection trip, travelling with a group from Stanford University to Sinaloa, Mexico in search of rare botanical species. Today’s botanists still study the 150,000 specimens she brought back from the field.
