Historia Plantarum (Latin for History of Plants) is the name by which is known an atlas of botany written by Theophrastus between the third and the second century BC. This work was organised in ten books, and is an encyclopedia of the plant kingdom, in which a draft taxonomy is sketched, together with a basic classification of plant "elements".
The work served as a reference point in botany for many centuries, and was further developed around 1200 by Giovanni Bodeo da Stapelio , who added a commentarius and drawings.
