Actionbioscience.org is a non-commercial, educational web site created to promote bioscience literacy. The web site provides peer reviewed articles by scientists, science educators, and science students on issues related to six bioscience content areas: environment, biodiversity, genomics, biotechnology, evolution, and science policy. Actionbioscience.org is owned and operated by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), a scientific association dedicated to advancing biological research and education for the welfare of society.
This web site is based on the list published by J.H. Willis, D. Pearson, M.T. Davis, and J.W. Green, Western Australian Herbarium Research Notes Number 12, August 1986. That original list has been supplemented by additional entries and some updates of dates, especially where people have died since that publication. Links to biographical notes and portraits have been added for many entries.
