Abstract

‘I have long felt earnestly desirous of promoting a love and knowledge of the Science of Botany in those English Colonies which it has been my good fortune to visit…’. So wrote Joseph Dalton Hooker in his Flora Novae-Zelandiae (1852-1855), which, along with Flora Antarctica (1844-47) and Flora Tasmaniae (1853–59), formed the ‘Antarctic’ publications, the culmination of his botanical work during the years of the expedition, 1839-1843. The New Zealand volumes – a milestone publication of modern systematic botany – described and illustrated some 1,767 species of plants. The illustration of Clematis colensoi (now C. forsteri) was by the botanical artist Walter Hood Fitch.
