HEIZER, Alda  e  CERQUEIRA, Aline Cardoso. Joséphine Schouteden-Wéry on the Belgian coast: a biologist involved in field work and collection building. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.3, pp.1049-1058. ISSN 0104-5970.

This text presents the findings and other aspects about the fieldwork of biologist Joséphine Schouteden-Wéry on the coast of Belgium. The information is taken from an article published in 1911 in Recueil de L’Institut Botanique Léo Errera, a periodical of the University of Brussels. Schouteden-Wéry replied to the Royal Society for Medical and Natural Sciences of Brussels (Société Royale des Sciences Médicales et Naturelles de Bruxelles) about the geological, climatic, hydrological and other factors that regulate the geographical distribution of species. She took part in study trips to the Congo, a Belgian colony in Africa, and was a leading member of the Union of Colonial Women (L’Union des Femmes Coloniales).

Palavras-chave : collection; natural sciences; geographical distribution of species; Joséphine Schouteden-Wéry (1879-1954).
