Description

Joseph Dalton Hooker was born on 30 June 1817, the son of William Jackson Hooker, a distinguished botanist. Along with Robert McCormick, Hooker made a world-wide collection of botanical specimens, including many from southern oceanic islands, providing material for his classic report Flora Antarctica (1844-1847). From 1845 to 1847, Hooker acted as botanist to the Geological Survey. Between 1865 and 1885 he was Director of Kew Gardens, a position that his father held before him.
