About this book

Pathfinders in Tasmanian Botany offers profiles of 31 people who are commemorated in the names of Tasmanian plants. Among the people profiled are the collectors who roamed Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), the botanists who described and named the plants, a few of our important botanical artists and other people who were important in providing support of one kind or another. So Joseph Banks (Banksia) is there, along with Ronald Campbell Gunn (all those species named gunnii). A few, like Italian Francesco Borone (Boronia), never came to Australia.

Included in Pathfinders in Tasmanian Botany are some notes on history that provide a background to the profiles. Pathfinders in Tasmanian Botany contains some interesting illustrations, including portraits where available, as well as many of Dick Burns' photographs of featured species and some localities.
