Biographies

Botanical collector John Boorman worked at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens from around 1887 until his retirement around 1930. He was well-regarded by then director J.H. Maiden and the botanic garden holds many specimens collected by him. Deane and Maiden named the hybrid Eucalyptus x boormanii in his honour, which Boorman had collected. Several taxa other than eucalypts were named in his honour, such as Acacia boormanii (Maiden) and Pterostylis boormanii (Rupp).
