The text on this board is comprised of the latin names of various native plants, that can either be found or are extinct, in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean. These plants are a part of a colonial history in which, during the nineteenth century, they were extradited to Europe, mainly to London. These plants can be thought of as background or hidden movement which transformed the vegetation across the Caribbean through their extraction, as well as, through the introduction of invasive species.
