Slézec A.-M., Aymonin G., Aupic C., Comtet-Andriamanjatoarivo S. & Grouard J.-C. 2010. — Une collection de référence: l'herbier de Jean-Henri Fabre. Adansonia, sér. 3, 32 (1): 7-29.Jean-Henri Fabre's (1823–1915) house in Sérignan-du-Comtat (Vaucluse, France) is the property of the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris since 1922. From 2000, this place is the subject of a partial renovation of the buildings and a complete saveguarding of the collections of the scientist, including a little known herbarium. The phanerogams of the French flora are well represented, specifically the ones from Vaucluse, Corsica and Hautes-Alpes. The cryptogams collection (algae, lichens, mosses and fungi) completes and increases the scientific interest of the whole. The SONNERAT database now allows the systematic ordering, consulting and mining of the data regarding the 10 010 phanerogams samples. This herbarium in which four isosyntypes have been discovered, to which 103 fungi reference specimens should be added, is now part of the French national collection but is still housed in the l'Harmas in Sérignan.
