PLEE, Anguste, French botanist, born in Pointe Pitre, Guadeloupe, in 1787" died in Fort Royal, Martinique, 17 August, 1825. He occupied a high official post, but was devoted to natural history, and embarked in 1819 for South America, charged by the government with the mission of exploring the continent as a botanist. After travelling extensively, and forming numerous collections of plants, he fell sick and returned to Martinique. His principal works are " Le jeune botaniste, ou entretiens d'un pere avec son ills sur la botanique et la physiologie vegetale, etc." (2 vols., Paris, 1812)" and a "Journal de voyage du botaniste Auguste Plee, a travers les Antilles, les Guyanes et le Bresil" (2 vols., Paris, 1828). The administration of the Paris museum published in 1830 a catalogue of Plee's collection in 3 vols.
