Ferdinand I.X. Rugel - 19th C. Southern botanist

Click HERE for an entry in the online Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture about 19th C. Southern U.S. field botanist and physician Ferdinand Rugel. His collections are the earliest from a resident botanist of the Southeastern States and some exsiccates have been preserved in the herbarium of Isaac C. Martindale, now at the U.S. National Arboretum (Click HERE).

See the link to the left for an article by George Ellison about 19th C. Appalachian botanising.
