Frederick Scheer (1792-1868) of Kew

Walker, Colin C. (1994). Frederick Scheer (1792-1868) of Kew. Kew Magazine, 11(2) pp. 74–81.



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).
