"Science benefited by his roving disposition: an audacious expedition to Spain and Portugal with two young members of the Fugger family resulted in the discovery of two hundred new species and the publication, in 1576, of his first work, Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Hispanias observatarum Historia (...). De l'Écluse's work was practical and descriptive, and he added little to the knowledge of classification. But it remains of high value even to-day, on account of his genius for detecting the essential specific features of plants and, in spite of the limited scientific terminology of the day, for giving recognisable descriptions of them. Again and again, in attempting to ascertain the correct application of names given by Linnaeus, the inquirer is led back to de l'Écluse's work, which can be described as the starting point of our modern knowledge for many genera."
