Summary

Full Title

Natural History Museum Maastricht (NL) - Herbarium

Description

The principal herbarium is that of A. de Wever (1874-1947) of Nuth. In 1912, de Wever was one of the founding members of the Natuurhistorisch Genootschap in Limburg. Between 1890 and 1943 he collected plants from the whole of southern Limburg, a collection which, by its being well-documented, ranks amongst the most important regional herbariums in The Netherlands. On the basis of this herbarium detailed studies into the flora and vegetation at the start of this century could be carried out. The de Wever Herbarium consists of c. 20,000 paper covers with a total of some 60,000 specimens. Of the smaller herbariums those of J.L. Rieter and L. Grégoire are of importance. Part of the collection are also a few pharmacist herbariums, the principal one of which is the mosses herbarium of 1770 of the Maastricht chemist J.L. Franquinet.
