Jacques Huber lived in Brazil for nineteen years (from1895 to 1914). During this time, he made nearly forty trips, both within and outside the country, resulting in botanical, zoological, and ethnographic collections. Furthermore, Huber also created visual records of the places he visited, including photographs and drawings. In this section, we present three of his expeditions: Ceará (1897), Ucayali River (1898), and Purus River (1904). In the maps below, you can navigate through the tabs to view the itinerary of each trip, the routes he followed, the collections he gathered (preserved at the Goeldi Museum), the photos and drawings he created along his journeys, as well as a few notes on the places he visited.
