Biographical/Historical note:
Henri Francois Pittier de Fabrega (1857-1950) was a Swiss-born geographer, botanist, and anthropologist who carried out most of his work in Central and South America. Educated in civil engineering at the University of Lausanne and Jena University, he moved to Costa Rica in 1887, where he became founder-director of the Instituto Fisico-geografico. In about 1904, Pittier took a position as "Special Agent in Botanical Investigation in Tropical Agriculture in the Bureau of Plant Industry" for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). He continued to work for the USDA until 1919, though his title was changed to Botanist in 1912. In 1919, he left the United States to become director of the Commercial Museum in Caracas, Venezuela, where he conducted extensive studies of the nation's flora.
