    Taxon info

    Thymus boissieri is one of c. 25 Greek species in a taxonomically difficult genus with centre of diversity in the Balkan Peninsula. Thymus boissieri occurs in the mountains of N & C mainland Greece, and is recognized, e.g., by the long, creeping stems and very narrow leaves with ± revolute margins. The name commemorates Edmond Boissier (1810–1885), a leading personality in the exploration of the Mediterranean and Oriental floras who published the monumental Flora Orientalis (1867–1888) and founded an important herbarium now kept separate at the Conservatoire Botanique in Geneva.A
