G. Ledyard Stebbins


Ledyard Stebbins, the most eminent plant evolutionist of the twentieth century, died on January 19, 2000, just 8 days before the colloquium on “Variation and Evolution in Plants and Microorganisms” was held on January 27–29, 2000, at the Beckman Center in Irvine, California. The colloquium, which he planned to attend, was sponsored by the National Academies of Sciences to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Stebbins' classic book “Variation and Evolution in Plants.” These proceedings include the papers presented at the colloquium.
