Botanist of the New World

Record #:
Born in France in 1746, botanist Andre Michaux was sent to America by the French government in 1785 to collect seeds, trees, shrubs, and plants. In the process he roamed through 30 North Carolina counties, where he either discovered or described 300 plants. Yet, though he covered more territory than Daniel Boone and made many botanical discoveries, Michaux remains relatively unknown in this country.
