The French-born botanist René Charles Joseph Ernest Maire, inter alia, contributed the treatment of the Crassulaceae, as volume XIV, for the Flore de l’Afrique de Nord (Maroc, Algérie, Tunisie, Tripolitaine, Cyrénaïque et Sahara) project (Maire 1976). Maire was born on 29 May 1878 in Lons-le-Saunier, in eastern France, and died on 24 November 1949 in Algiers, Algeria, with his name therefore appropriately prefixed with “†” on the title page of volume XIV of the Flore. He ended his career as Rector of the University of Algiers.
