Sebastien Vaillant (1669-1721) is honored in France as the man who first understood the nature of sex in plants. He spent many years on the preparation of his 'Botanicon parisiense', in which he developed his study of sexual characteristics, but died before the work could be published. He was a student of Tournefort's and considerably influenced Linnaeus" (Hunt).
Provenance: Lars Bergquist (born 1930), Swedish author and diplomat.
