Joseph Dalton Hooker Virtual Issue


Joseph Dalton Hooker Virtual Issue

December 2011 is the centenary of the death of Joseph Dalton Hooker and this event is being marked by a meeting, organised by the Linnean Society, Kew, the Kew Guild and the University of Sussex, and a special exhibition about his life and work, both at Kew. One of the most influential botanists and scientists of the 19th Century, he was Director of Kew for more than 20 years and was President of the Royal Society from 1873 to 1878.

The joint venture by the Linnean Society and Wiley-Blackwell, making the legacy copy from the Society’s journals available electronically, has allowed us to compile a virtual issue of the Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society to celebrate this important anniversary. Here we present five of Hooker’s significant publications published by the Linnean Society. In addition, we also include a collection of 10 papers by other authors, published in the Society’s journals from 1898 to 2009, which reflect the ongoing importance of Hooker’s contribution to botany.
