Jules Cardot (1860-1934) was a French botanist and bryologist considered in his time one of the world's leading experts on the mosses of Antarctica. His collection of herbarium specimens at his laboratories in Charleville was heavily looted and damaged during World War I.[1] The French Academy of Sciences awarded the 1893 "Prix Montague" to Cardot for his work on mosses and to Albert Gaillard (1858–1903) [2] for his work on fungi.[3][4] Cardot named 40 genera and 1200 species.[5]
