Index of Botanists
Authors of plant names, botanical and mycological collectors, and authors of publications of importance to systematic botany and mycology, are combined into a single resource. To search: enter the person's name either as lastname, firstname, e.g. jones, david or by the standard abbreviation, e.g. d r jones. The name of an author or collector sometimes consists of multiple names and can be entered as such. Team records can be located by searching for the name of any of its members. Check the Team box when searching for a team. Checking the botanist's role (Authors, Collectors, Individuals, Teams) will constrain the search further, otherwise all records in the database that satisfy the search criteria will be matched. Herbaria in which material is known to have been deposited by a botanist can be searched in Remarks. Place names and taxon names sporadically occur within Remarks.
This search is also available as a simple rest service returning JSON, just add the parameter &json=y e.g.Asa Gray.
