The Nuts and Bolts of Doing the Flora of the Bahama Archipelago: How Don Correll Worked



The Flora of the Bahama Archipelago was published in a little over 8 years after it was initiated. In this paper, we document how Correll managed this feat from the initial concept to herbarium and fieldwork to illustrations and collaborations. Both archival data and personal recollections are incorporated as a demonstration of how such a project was conceived, conducted, and completed.
