New Zealand botanists

This page provides references of biographical information for New Zealand botanists arranged alphabetically by surname.

These were published in the Biography/Bibliography section of the New Zealand Botanical Society Newsletter, principally by the late Dr Andrew Thompson from 1992 to 2004 (who focussed on notable woman botanists) and the late Dr Eric Godley from 1991 to 2010 (who produced a series of Biographical Notes up to No. 76). Although obituaries contain useful information they are generally excluded here. Also excluded are a few general biographies lacking in-depth information (e.g., on early New Zealand diatomists ).

This page updates the 2006 Biography/Bibliography indexes and the links below are to PDF issues of the New Zealand Botanical Society Newsletter that contain the original articles.
