Remarks on collector.

Hans Winkler (1877-1945) was a German botanist who first coined the term «genome» from the combination of the words «gene» and «chromosome» ( Winkler 1920). He travelled to Indonesia (Dutch East Indies at the time) in 1903/04 and worked in Bogor for several months. He subsequently became Professor at the University in Hamburg and Director of the Botanical Garden. In 1924-1925 he visited Indonesia a second time with the aim to collect material on behalf of his institute ( Dammerman 1945). He arrived in Bogor in September 1924, departed for Borneo in late October 1924 ( Winkler 1927a, b), and returned to Bogor in late Febuary 1925. He collected at Situ Gunong (S. slope of Gunung Gedeh) in Bogor.
