80 years ago, on April 1, Flore Laurentienne was published for the first time.
In 1935 Conrad Kirouac, better known by the name of Brother Marie-Victorin, was offering his magnificent opus on Quebec flora. More than a botanical work, Flore Laurentienne is full of ethnological, agricultural, medical and alimentary
Flore Laurentienne is a gem that is also for many, including myself, the key work of our flora passion.
Despite his age and the advancement of our knowledge, Flore Laurentienne remains the reference for identifying plants in Quebec.
Happy anniversary Flore Laurentienne and where ever you are, thank you Conrad Kirouac.
