The J. B. Duby Herbarium (liverworts and mosses)

Jean-Etienne Duby (1798-1885) was born in Geneva to a family originating from the Pays de Gex, France. He studied at the Geneva Academy and upon entering the Faculty of Theology in 1916, he met A.-P. de Candolle. A.-P. De Candolle encouraged him in his passion for natural history and followed his studies over a number of years. J.-E. Duby worked in Eaux-Vives, Geneva, as a clergyman for most of his life but maintained an interest in botany. He actively collaborated with A.-P. De Candolle, most notably by preparing a bibliography of botanical literature of North America for his Prodromus. Later, he spent his time studying cryptogams. He acquired collections of bryophytes (such as the Hedwig-Schwägrichen Herbarium and the Welwitsch collectin from Angola), and studied specimens of the Delessert Herbarium (such as those of Père Llanos from the Philippines, of Hénon from Japan, of Lecoultre and Robillard from Mauritius, and Puiggari from Brasil). The Duby Herbarium was acquired by W. Barbey for the Boissier Herbarium and this is now integrated into the General Herbarium of the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens of the City of Geneva.
