A lithographic color plate from Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur of 1899 showing an artist's depiction of different varieties of tropical plants:

  1. (center): Alsophila sp. (in Cyatheaceae)
  2. (left): Polypodium sp. (in Polypodiaceae)
  3. (right): Asplenium nidus = Asplenium nidus L.
  4. (bottom left, above): Angiopteris sp. (in Marattiaceae)
  5. (bottom left, below): Monogramma sp. (in Pteridaceae)
  6. (bottom right): Pteris quadriaurita = Pteris quadriaurita Retz.

Haeckel published 100 fabulous prints beginning in 1889 in a series of ten books called Kunstformen der Natur (“Art Forms in Nature”), collected in two volumes in 1904. 

The astonishing work was “not just a book of illustrations but also the summation of his view of the world,” one which embraced the new science of Darwinian evolution wholeheartedly, writes scholar Olaf Breidbach in his 2006 Visions of Nature.
