RAMEE, Stanislas Henri de la (rah-may), French naturalist, born in Perigueux in 1747; died in Fontainebleau in 1803. He studied medicine and botany in Toulouse, and at the age of twenty had formed a valuable herbarium of the flora of Languedoc, when he went to Paris to study under Buffon, whom he assisted for several years in the Royal botanical garden. In 1783 he was sent to Peru to study the effects of cholera, which then was raging in Callao, and he visited afterward the Andes of Peru, Central America, the Isthmus of Panama, Cuba, and several of the West Indies, returning with valuable collections in natural history. His works include "Nova Svstema Naturae" (2 vols., Paris, 1792); "MonogralJhie des drogues et medicaments simples de l'Amerique du Sad" (1794); and " Prodome des plantes recueillies en AmSrique et dans les Indes Occidentales" (1798).
