Summary: Clusius' collected works were published in two parts: Rariorum plantarum historia (1601) contains his Spanish and Austrian flora and adds more information about new plants as well as a pioneering mycological study on mushrooms from Central Europe (as appendix: Fungorum in Pannoniis Observatorium) and Exoticorum libri decem (1605), an important survey of exotic flora and fauna. The Exoticorum libri decem consists partly of Clusius's own discoveries, partly of translated and edited versions of earlier publications, always properly acknowledged, and with many new illustrations. Separately identifiable within this compendium can be found Clusius's Latin translations, with his own notes, from: Garcia de Orta, Colóquios dos simples e drogas he cousas medicinais da Índia (1563), Nicolás Monardes, Historia medicinal de las cosas que se traen de nuestras Indias Occidentales (1565–1574), Cristóbal Acosta, Tractado de las drogas y medicinas de las Indias orientales (1578). There is also material by Prospero Alpini (Prosper Alpinus) with notes by Clusius. As a separately paginated appendix appears Clusius's Latin translation (first published in 1589) of Pierre Belon, Observations (1553).
