Description - Picturing Tropical Nature by Nancy Leys Stepan

Reflecting on the work of scientists and artists, photographic attempts to represent tropical races, anti-tropicalism and its role in an emerging environmentalist sensibility, and depictions of disease in the new tropical medicine,'Picturing Tropical Nature' identifies the conflicts over meaning that shaped the emergence of the tropics, and in so doing questions the nature of representation itself.
