Apple Tree Botanical Poster - Malus domestica
The Apple Tree may be among the first trees cultivated by man, descended from wild species found in Central Asia. A deciduous tree in the rose family, it has been widespread and used for food across Eurasia for thousands of years, and has been introduced to temperate climates worldwide. In 2010 it was announced that the complete genome for the apple had been decoded, and it contains some 57,000 genes - significantly more than the human genome. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
