This is the inventory of the whole plant collection made between 1859 and 1899 by the French lawyer Albert DES MÉLOIZES (b.1838-d.1910) which is made up of a few specimens he has collected and a lot of exsiccatae he has bought from Charles Magnier and the Société dauphinoise. They were collected mainly in France and Switzerland, but also in Germany, Italy, Algeria and many others. Specimens cover phanerogamic flora and some Fungi. Geographical coordinates often correspond to the village closest to the collection. When only the department, region or country is known, the geographical coordinates are located on the corresponding prefecture or capital. Inventaire des 6404 parts (18 234 spécimens) subventionné par le MESRI.
