Abstract

Baron Ferdinand von Mueller was Australia’s most celebrated botanist of the nineteenth century. Although a broad-based plant taxonomist, he described 19 new palm taxa, including two genera and 15 species in Australia, and one species each in New Guinea and Fiji. Significantly, Mueller’s taxa represent about 25% of all the palms thus far recognized for Australia and its off-shore dependencies, and he remains the single most important taxonomist to have worked on Australian palms.
