Botanists throughout Brazil celebrated the National Day of Botany yesterday. We want to pay tribute to all those who dedicate themselves to the study and conservation of Brazilian flora by sharing with you our field guide of Vochysiaceae of Serra do Cipó by Gustavo Hiroaki Shimizu and Kikyo Yamamoto. Shimizu is one of the most beloved botanists in the whole country and has been a great contributor to our field guide program since 2010. Today is also a fantastic day as we celebrate Gustavo's birthday. Congratulations, Gustavo Shimizu, and thanks for a decade of a beautiful partnership!
