Chrysalis: Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis
In 1699, at age 52, artist/naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian sailed from Amsterdam to South America to study metamorphosis. She stalked the tropical forests studying caterpillars and butterflies for two years, but her observations were mostly dismissed and forgotten. Nature writer Kim Todd discusses Merian's work, and her book Chrysalis with Denny Smithson.
