De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes (Notable Commentaries on the History of Plants) is a book by Leonhart Fuchs on herbal plants published in Basel in 1542. It was illustrated by:
Leonhart Fuchs, a German physician and botanist is often considered the originator of Latin names for the rapidly increasing number of plants known to science. For instance he coined the name "Digitalis" in his "De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes" (1542).
"Nepenthes merrilliana" produces the largest pitchers in the "Insignes" group and, unlike "N. sibuyanensis", has two-flowered pedicels. Furthermore, its pitchers bear a pair of well developed fringed wings.
Ambassador Kawar was awarded the Medal of Independence of the first degree by His Majesty King Abdulla II of Jordan and holds a number of decorations including the “Commandeur De La Legion d’ Honneur” from France, the “Medalha de D. Afonso Henriques” from Portugal and the “Insignes de Dame de Grand-Croix de l’Ordre de Saint Grégoire le Grand” from the Holy See.
The scientific name "avellana" derives from the town of Avella in Italy, and was selected by Linnaeus from Leonhart Fuchs's "De historia stirpium commentarii insignes" (1542), where the species was described as ""Avellana nux sylvestris"" ("wild nut of Avella"). That name was taken in turn from Pliny the Elder's first century A.D. encyclopedia Naturalis Historia.
B. H. Danser suggested that "N. insignis" is related to "N. merrilliana" from the Philippines. He placed both species in the "Insignes" clade, the members of which are characterised by coarse stems, large leaves, sparse indumentums, sessile leaves, and lids without appendages.
"Nepenthes sibuyanensis" belongs to B. H. Danser's "Insignes" group, which also includes the closely related Philippine species "N. burkei", "N. merrilliana", and "N. ventricosa", as well as "N. insignis" from New Guinea. It appears to be intermediate between "N. merrilliana" and "N. ventricosa" in terms of both morphology and geographical distribution.
Albrecht Meyer also known as Albertus Meyer in Latinised form, was a botanical illustrator noted for his more than 500 plant images in Leonhart Fuchs's epic pre-Linnean publication of 1542, "De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes", published in Latin and Greek, and almost immediately translated into German. At the time it was regarded as one of the most beautifully illustrated books on plants and a jewel in the crown of German Renaissance.
In the Modern Age and Renaissance, European herbals diversified and innovated, and came to rely more on direct observation than being mere adaptations of traditional models. Typical examples from the period are the fully illustrated "De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes" by Leonhart Fuchs (1542, with over 400 plants), the astrologically themed "Complete Herbal" by Nicholas Culpeper (1653), and the "Curious Herbal" by Elizabeth Blackwell (1737).
In 1928, B. H. Danser published his seminal monograph, "The Nepenthaceae of the Netherlands Indies", in which he divided "Nepenthes" into six clades, based on observations of herbarium material. The clades were: the "Vulgatae", "Montanae", "Nobiles", "Regiae", "Insignes" and "Urceolatae". "Regiae" appears to reflect the relationships of its members quite well, although the same cannot be said for the other clades. Despite this, Danser's classification was undoubtedly a great improvement on previous attempts.
Pistorius also busied himself with cabalistic studies, and published "Artis cabbalisticæ, h. e. reconditæ theologiæ et philosophiæ scriptorum tomus unus" (Basle, 1587). As court historiographer to the Margrave of Baden, he investigated the genealogy of the princely House of Zähringen; he also issued two works on historical sources: "Polonicæ historiæ corpus, i. e. Polonicarum rerum latini veteres et recentiores scriptores quotquot exstant" (Basle, 1582), and "Rerum Germanicarum veteres jam primum publicati scriptores aliquot insignes medii ævi ad Carolum V" (Frankfort, 1583–1607).
In 1928, B. H. Danser published his seminal monograph, "The Nepenthaceae of the Netherlands Indies", in which he divided "Nepenthes" into six clades, based on observations of herbarium material. The clades were: the "Vulgatae", "Montanae", "Nobiles", "Regiae", "Insignes" and "Urceolatae". Danser placed "N. rajah" in the "Regiae" (Latin: pl. of "rēgia": royal). The "Regiae" clade as proposed by Danser is shown in the adjacent table.
"Nepenthes bellii" is closely allied to "N. merrilliana" and "N. surigaoensis" and shares with these species a similar morphology of the pitchers and laminae as well as a reddish colouration of the uppermost leaves. It is not easily confused with them, however, because it is much smaller in all respects, particularly in the size of its pitchers and inflorescence. More generally, "N. bellii" appears to fall under B. H. Danser's classical "Insignes" group, which also includes "N. burkei", "N. insignis", "N. merrilliana", and "N. ventricosa", among others, with "N. sibuyanensis" being a recent addition.
Danser divided the genus "Nepenthes" into six clades based on observations of herbarium material. The clades were the "Vulgatae", "Montanae", "Nobiles", "Regiae", "Insignes", and "Urceolatae". Danser's classification was undoubtedly a great improvement on previous attempts, and forms the basis for more recent monographs, such as those of Charles Clarke ("Nepenthes of Borneo" and "Nepenthes of Sumatra and Peninsular Malaysia") and Matthew Jebb and Martin Cheek ("A skeletal revision of "Nepenthes" (Nepenthaceae)" and "Nepenthaceae"). Charles Clarke writes that Danser's monograph "remains the definitive taxonomic work on "Nepenthes"" and explains its importance as follows:
Dávila Padilla was not the author of numerous works, but his "Historia de la Fundación y Discurso de la Provincia de Santiago de México de la Orden de Predicadores por las vidas de sus varones insignes y casos notables de Nueva España" (Madrid, 1596; Brussels, 1625) is an important history of the Dominicans in Mexico from 1526 until 1592. As was typical of such a work, Dávila Padilla emphasized the virtues of fellow Dominicans, as well as their work among the indigenous. He deals with the founder of the Mexican province, Fray Domingo de Betanzos and Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas, among others. His work is an important source of early colonial Mesoamerican ethnohistory. Beristain mentions a third edition of 1634. While not free from mistakes, it was a major chronicle of the Dominican Order and its missions in America up to the end of the sixteenth century.
Though native to the western hemisphere, "Cucurbita" began to spread to other parts of the world after Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. Until recently, the earliest known depictions of this genus in Europe was of "Cucurbita pepo" in "De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes" in 1542 by the German botanist Leonhart Fuchs, but in 1992, two paintings, one of "C. pepo" and one of "C. maxima", painted between 1515 and 1518, were identified in festoons at Villa Farnesina in Rome. Also, in 2001 depictions of this genus were identified in "Grandes Heures of Anne of Brittany" ("Les Grandes Heures d'Anne de Bretagne"), a French devotional book, an illuminated manuscript created between 1503 and 1508. This book contains an illustration known as "Quegourdes de turquie", which was identified by cucurbit specialists as "C. pepo" subsp. "texana" in 2006.
Leonhart Fuchs, the eminent namesake of the genus, was born in 1501 in Wemding in the Duchy of Bavaria. A physician and professor, he occupied the chair of Medicine at the Tübingen University from his appointment at the age of 34 until his death in 1566. Besides his medical knowledge, according to his record of activities which was extensive for the time, he studied plants. This was usual for the period. Most remedies and medicines were herbal and the two subjects were often inseparable. In the course of his career Fuchs wrote the seminal "De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes", which was richly illustrated and published in "1542". Along with Otto Brunfels (1489–1534) and Hieronymus Bock (1498–1554), also called Hieronymus Tragus, he is today considered one of the three fathers of botany.
In 1975, Serra received the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture. He was awarded the Goslarer Kaiserring in 1981, and in 1991, he won the Wilhem Lehmbruck Prize for Sculpture in Duisburg. In 1993, Serra was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Akademie der Künste (Germany), as well as having been named member of the Orden Pour le Mérite für Wissenschaften und Künste (2002) in Germany and Commandeur de L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (2008) in France. In 1994, he was honored with the Praemium Imperiale. In 2006 he was elected into the National Academy of Design. Serra has been awarded the Presidentʼs Medal from the Architectural League of New York in 2014, the first time the prize has been given to an artist. In 2015, he was awarded France’s premier award, the Insignes de Chevalier de l’Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur at a ceremony in New York.
