Dear Colleagues,

If you are interested by the History of Early and Modern Plant Sciences
(Botany, plant physiology, horticulture, studies on farming plants,
etc.), from 1450 to 1850, I inform you about  the creation of a new list
"early and modern sciences on plants"? The list name is
plant-early-modern-sciences. If you want to be registred, send a email

Best, Gilles DENIS
