Abstract

In a time when science and technology were almost exclusively dominated by men, the European naturalist and biological illustrator, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), studied arthropods, particularly American and European insects. rough careful observations, she documented and lavishly depicted phenomena that today we call parasitoidism and phenotypic plasticity, making her one of the first to inquire into these topics. Merian's legacy emphasizes the inextricable link between the environment and organisms.
