|Contribution||Described and illustrated yeast cells (the Mycoderma spp. of Persoon).|
|Notes||Considered them to be animalcules. Did not propose role in fermentation. See 1822 & 1827. Lechevalier (and Solotorovsky) give date as 1827; they mention this contribution in a footnote on p. 22 -- but their Index lists Desmazieres only for p. 116 (on which there seems to be no mention of it!).|
