Anna Weber-van Bosse was the first woman to be included as an official member of the scientific staff of an oceanographic expedition. She was responsible for studying the marine flora during the Siboga expedition (1899-1900), a Dutch government sponsored scientific exploration of the oceans of modern day Indonesia. Emily Hutcheson, a doctoral candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will explore how scientists including Anna Weber-van Bosse and Ethel Barton Gepp, reframed the discussion of coral reefs from geological structures to living units, thus shaping the modern concept of the reef ecosystem.
