Abstract:

This article provides a short life history of the Danish count and amateur botanist Frederik Christian Raben, giving a short account of his journey in Brazil, a history of his Brazilian herbaria, and explanations of the annotations on his specimens. A few years after his death, F. C. Raben's Brazilian herbarium was divided into different sets. Specimens with scanty or sometimes even misleading collection data were already accessible to students of Brazilian flora in 1842. Specimens with Raben's original rather informative labels that remained with his family were temporarily accessible in 1887-1905 and were acquired by the herbarium in Copenhagen in 1996.
