LOPES, Maria Margaret. 'Scenes from deep times': bones, travels, and memories in the cultures of nature in Brazil. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.3, pp. 615-634. ISSN 0104-5970. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702008000300004.
This article examines the different roles played by field and non-field naturalists in constructing cultures of nature and in the dispute to construct scientific careers in the nineteenth century. Based on the concept of "threshold experience," it looks at little-explored aspects of Peter Wilhelm Lund's paleontological work (1801-1980) in Brazil and its international impact.
