Abstract

Otto Kuntze (1843-1907) is renowned for his Revisio generum plantarum in which he changed thousands of plant names in accordance with his revision of the 1867 Paris Code of Botanical Nomenclature. His contributions to plant taxonomy, based on his world-wide collecting trips, and his monographs are not as well known. A short biographical sketch and bibliography on Kuntze's natural history and plant taxonomy publications are included with detailed enumeration of localities and dates for trips around the world in 1874-1876 and 1904, to southern U.S.S.R. in 1886, to the Canary Islands and Madeira in 1887-1888, to South America in 1891-1893 and to southern Africa in 1894. Herbaria housing Kuntze specimens are cited. The majority of the type specimens are at the New York Botanical Garden.
