Botanical Adventures in the Orient at the National Museum of Natural History

Botanical Adventures in the Orient at the National Museum of Natural History

Eager to discover the plants of North Africa and the Orient, the botanists of the National Museum of Natural History have explored those lands for over 300 years, beginning in the early 18th century. Sometimes dangerous and daring, perhaps even reckless, the early botanical expeditions enriched our knowledge of the flora of distant lands, which in those days were little known. They brought back with them astonishingly diverse specimens of plant life that amazed with their beauty or scents. This exhibition tells the history of those trips to exotic places and recounts the travel stories of those intrepid explorers, illustrated by photographs, expedition logbooks, preserved specimens and other artefacts. It is presented in the Cabinet d’Histoire of the Jardin des Plantes. JR.
