Call for Contributors: Energy in American History

We seek qualified researchers to serve as contributors to the forthcoming, two-volume ABC-CLIO reference work Energy in American History: A Political, Social, and Environmental Encyclopedia. The project will introduce readers to major energy transitions from the earliest days of wood, wind, and horse power through the Industrial Revolution and the Age of Steam and into the era of coal and oil in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Linnean Folklore Rediscovered.

Dear Historical Geography Scholars,

You may be interested to read that the source of Linnaeus' idea behind using the mythology about Andromeda and Perseus to name a plant genus has been found in a page of decoded Italian Medieval manuscript, dating from 1444. This tells us something about human geographical connections in Europe over the past centuries.
