Esploratori italiani nell'Africa orientale fra il 1870 ed il 1930. Missioni scientifiche con raccolte botaniche, rilievi geografici ed etnografici. 2005. (Centro Studi Erbario Tropicale, Firenze, Public. 104). illus. (many col.) 142 p. gr8vo., Hardcover. - In Italian.
The Erbario Tropicale is particularly rich in plants of Tropical East Africa, Somalia and Ethopia (including Eritrea) in the first place. Its most valuable historical stock, including many type specimens, is due to the exploration of these countries by Italian naturalists between 1870 and 1930. To them the present volume is devoted. A biographical note is devoted to each of 16 protagonists of 11 botanical expeditions of that period. There are well known botanists among them, such as Odoardo Beccari, Achille Terracciano, Adriano Fiori and Emilio Chiovenda. Mapped itineraries have been prepared for each expedition, and many interesting archival documents, including photographs, are reproduced, complemented with modern colour photographs by the second author.
