Set of slides that were taken on an expedition by Prof Pulle, professor in botany at Utrecht University. The slides seem to stem from two versions of the set, some slides exist in coloured and in black and white versions. The slides document the tropical vegetation of Suriname, then a Dutch colony ('Dutch-Guyana'), and some images of researchers doing field work and local populations.
