Dear Humboldtians!

On behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to the Salon on Oct 23rd which takes place in the Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), as usual.

During the Salon a lecture will be given by Prof. Susanne S. Renner on

What we know and don’t know about Humboldt’s botanical collections.

The literature concerning the travels of Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) and Aimé Bonpland (1773-1858) is enormous. Despite this extensive scholarship, we do not know the current whereabouts of roughly half the botanical specimens they collected, which also means we do not know where precisely these plants were collected. My talk will explain why this is the case and highlight recent insights about Humboldt’s fake plant locations on the Chimborazo.

As usual, there will be wine and cheese before the talk and a chance to continue the discussion with the speaker after the talk.

If you want to join us, please register by sending an email so that we can plan accordingly.

Venue:Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), Amalienstr. 38, 80799 München
Date: Wednesday, Oct 23rd, 2019, 19:30h

With kind regards,
Stefan Recksiegel and Lutz Cleemann
