In the nineteenth century, botanical models were used in university education. These three dimensional objects were designed to represent the shape of the plants but also their structure in the smallest details and, if necessary, it was made possible to open them or take them to pieces in order to show the hidden architecture of the plant. A remarkable collection of models has been preserved at the FUNDP. It will be studied and presented in its time.
