The Montelucci Herbarium

Giuliano Montelucci (1899-1983), chemist, Major General of the Air Force and free lecturer in Geobotany, is considered one of the most eclectic figures in the Natural Sciences of the 20th century. He contributed with great insight and competence to delineate the plant landscape of Latium, studying many taxa of considerable phytogeographic interest for the flora of central Italy. The originality and scientific value of this Herbarium lies in the wealth of additional information, reported directly on the herbarium sheets as ecological or phytogeographic notes and extensive taxonomic notes in cases of critical taxa.
