The Friends of the Forfar Botanists have written short biographies on each of our famous five.  We have also included a page on some of the other botanists from Angus.  For those who would like to know more, we are preparing additional information including the plants associated with them and their publications. Source reference for the material will be found in the detailed information.

We would be interested in any information about the botanists or their descendants; whether new information or possible corrections to our biographies.
