About this book

Pehr Forsskål was a member of the Royal Danish Expedition to Egypt and the Yemen, 1761-1763. He died in the Yemen, but his plants and notes were brought back to Europe by Niebuhr, the sole survivor of the expedition. This book gives a history of the expedition, provides a list of all Forsskål's collections with their location, references to them, and present and former identifications.
