YAGP: Yet another group photo! The Global Biodiversity Heritage Library in Morocco

Yes, what is a meeting without the chance to take a GROUP PHOTO! Now, group photos are very important for many reasons: they show we really were there; they show that we really were doing work (I suppose) and well, they show us as a group!

The most famous group photo (and, perhaps outside of the Biodiversity Heritage Library collection, the only one reused on a regular basis) is the famed 1927 Fifth Solvay International Conference on Electrons and Photons. Now that's a group photo! The men and women in that group photo were, well, quite a group and included such household names as E. Schrödinger, W. Heisenberg, M. Born, N. Bohr; M. Planck, M. Skłodowska-Curie, and A. Einstein.

On our recent trip to Morocco, the Biodiversity Heritage Library will make no such claims to international notoriety, but will add to the stock of GROUP PHOTOS:
