Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jos Mariano Moci o Su rez Lozano (1757-1820), or simply Jos Mariano Moci o, was a naturalist from New Spain. He was born in Temascaltepec (modern-day Mexico State) in 1757. Being poor, he worked in many different jobs to study in the Seminario Tridentino de M xico. In 1778 he graduated in philosophy and in 1787 he was called to take part in the scientific expedition of Mart n de Sess, with whom he travelled across New Spain, reaching the most inhospitable places of the Empire, being especially notables his trips to the Pacific Northwest (modern-day U.S. states of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, and the Canadian province of British Columbia), among others. He could hardly be paid for his job, instead he had created one of the most important collections of his times.show more
