Scientific discourses of ecology began to cohere in the first decades of the 20th century. The making, distribution and use of photographs amongst early ecologists indicate a fundamental role for visualization in constituting and communicating the new science. This paper will consider the role of visual practices in constituting and mediating ecology as new specialist knowledge as ecologists strove to define their object of study and to fashion a common conceptual framework for their subject.
