…Les Herbonautes missions are open again!…

In 2016, staff at the MNHN in Paris together with RECOLNAT and Tela Botanica, organized the first mission on Asian Fagaceae, to support the work on the new Flora for Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. The first mission was centered around the extensive collections of Eugène Poilane. As a result of the mission, the 63 members of the mission inventoried and assessed data of over 3000 specimens, numbering over 60000 individual contributions! More information on Poilane and the mission and can be found here:
