Information

Cecil Boden Kloss (28 March 1877 – 19 August 1949)[1] was an English zoologist. He was an expert on the mammals and birds of Southeast Asia. In the early 20th century, Kloss accompanied the American naturalist William Louis Abbott in exploring the Andaman and Nicobar islands. During the years 1912-1913 Kloss participated in the 2nd Wollaston Expedition to Dutch New Guinea, led by British medical doctor and explorer A.F.R. Sandy Wollaston, in the capacity of zoologist. From 1908 he worked under Herbert Christopher Robinson at the museum in Kuala Lumpur. He was Director of the Raffles Museum from 1923 to 1932 and President of the Malayan Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society in 1930.[

Carl Linnaeus known as the father of modern botany made extensive use of Rheede’s book as he trusted the author’s expertise. A lot of Rheede’s work was encouraged by the Dutch East India Company as they would use this information to better fight diseases. Hortus Malabaricus is important also because it talks about the economic and medical benefits to be gained from plants in the region. Another indication of its relevance can be attributed to the fact that it contains the lectotype for eleven plants. For example, van Reede’s ‘Todda Panna’ was declared the lectotype for Cycas circinalis by Stevenson et al in 1993. Linnaeus had established the genus Cycas in 1753 but since then confusion has reigned over the proper identification of various species within it; for it seems clear that Linnaeus had based some of his comments on earlier works where different species had not been correctly identified. In subsequent commentaries on the plant, Cycas rumphii and Cycas circinalis have often been used interchangeably. Several species of plants have their “type” illustrations in this work.

Hortus Malabaricus is a work of 12 volumes with as many as 794 illustrations. Each plant of the Malabar region has been recreated in detail and in languages such as Latin, Arabic, Sanskrit and Malayalam. Rheede also understood the benefit that would be gained from using the help of the locals. He collaborated with people like Itti Achuden, Ranga Bhat, Appu Bhat and Vinayak Pandit to create his magnum opus. The effort proved to be worth it as has become one of the  most valued works used by many generations.
