Arthur Cronquist

Arthur Cronquist

Arthur John Cronquist (1919–1992) was a United States botanist and a specialist on Compositae. He is considered one of the most influential botanists of the 20th century, largely due to his formulation of the Cronquist system. Two plant genera in the aster family have been named in his honor. These are Cronquistia, a possible synonym of Carphochaete, and Cronquistianthus, which is sometimes included as a group within Eupatorium. The former was applied by R.M. King and the latter by him and Harold E. Robinson.

Famous quotes containing the word arthur:

    Muhammad is the Messenger of God,
    and those who are with him are hard
    against the unbelievers, merciful
    one to another. Thou seest them
    bowing, prostrating, seeking bounty
    from God and good pleasure. Their
    mark is on their faces, the trace of
    prostration....
    God has promised
    those of them who believe and do deeds
    of righteousness forgiveness and
    a mighty wage.
    Qur’An. Victory 48:35, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
