Survey at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris

Between November 18 to 22, 2013, the Central Library, the Library of Botany, and the Herbarium of Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, in Paris, were surveyed to find manuscripts and rare works of Jacques Huber, specimens collected and/or described by him, and also works written by other botanists. We thank to M. Antoine Monaque (Central Library), to Mme. Florence Tessier (Library of Botany), to Mme. Claudia Gonçalves and to Dr. Marc Jeanson (Herbarium) for their support and kindness.
