The C. Meylan Herbarium mosses and hepatic plants – Swiss National Park)

Charles Meylan (1868-1941) was born in Brassus, and was a teacher at Chaux, near to Saint-Croix, from 1888 until 1923. He was excited by science and took a special interest in myxomycetes, lichens, liverworts and mosses, of which he was considered a specialist. It was in 1912 that, along with another well-known Swiss bryologist called Jules Amann, he published the “Flore des mousses de la Suisse.” His 1924 work “Les hépatiques de la Suisse” reveals his many years of study the liverworts of Switzerland. He published his research after his retirement and his last publication, “Les Muscinées du Parc National Suisse” of 1940, came out when he was 72. His principal herbarium is deposited in LAU but G has an extensive collection of his from the Swiss National Park.
