Information is provided on all individuals known to have collected botanical specimens in the eastern Ecuadorean lowlands below 600 m altitude from 1739 until 30 May 1988. This area belongs to the provinces Sucumbíos, Napo, Pastaza, Morona-Santiago, and Zamora-Chinchipe and covers about 71,000 km sq. Besides biographical data, are included collecting dates and localities, herbaria containing the specimens, and pertinent references to publications by the collector, or about the collector or the expedition. The data are arranged alphabetically by collector, including cross references between main and secondary collectors. Altogether 205 collectors are treated. The total number of specimens gathered in the eastern Ecuadorean lowlands (excluding duplicates, including bryophytes and fungi) is around 61,000, i.e., about 86 per 100 km sq, representing an estimated 4000 species of vascular plants. An index to localities and a map provide general information on the main collecting regions.
