About Roberta Jean Smith

The prints in this gallery are digital photographs of pressed plants collected in NE Texas. Pressing and drying specimens of plant species is standard procedure for deposition in herbaria for documentation and scientific study. Many of the plants in the gallery were in-press for a short period to preserve natural colors and photographed on herbarium paper. Collected plants were initially identified, photographed in habitat, ecological data recorded, pressed and transferred to the S.M. Tracy Herbarium at Texas A&M University, College Station and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas in Ft. Worth for deposition, documentation , and future study. Upon arrival at the Tracy Herbarium, Monique Reed, plant taxonomist, confirmed the identity of each specimen. Each print in the gallery is labeled with the correct scientific name, an accepted common name, and plant family name. The prints are an ancillary element of a rigorous scientific inventory of over 520 plant species collected, identified and deposited in herbaria from an ecologically diverse 1,800 acre parcel adjacent to the Red River, Greenwood.

Roberta Jean Smith earned a B.S., M.S., and PhD degrees from The University California, Riverside. She taught and conducted research in plant physiology and plant tissue culture at Texas A&M University, College Station for 30 years. She was honored as the Eugene Butler Professor in Biotechnology for her scientific accomplishments during her tenure. Roberta is presently retired as Professor Emeritus, Texas A&M University, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College Station and resides in NE Texas on the Greenwood property.

Roberta was impressed with the raw beauty and uniqueness of the pressed plants and decided to share an appreciation for the nuances of nature with everyone. She anticipates you will enjoy them as she does.
