  Carl Ludwig Willdenow (1765-1812)
From: Durightmm at aol.com on 2002.06.10 at 02:31:04(8979)
A short time back his name was mentioned as in A. willdenowii. It caused me to research it because for years I was of the mistaken belief the name was Willdenov, and it has appeared as such. Using search engine GOOGLE I found several pages devoted to this talented man and offer it to those who have a like interest. Originally trained as an apothecary he became a Medical Doctor and later a botanist. Good solid reading. Joe
