Nineteen-ninety-two heralded the bicentenary of the birth of Frederick Scheer, and in view of his associations with Kew a tribute and appraisal of his work as an amateur botanist seem appropriate. However, there is little biographical information on record of this one-time resident of Kew, and the main source is the obiturary by his friend and colleague Berthold Seemann (Seemann, 1869).
