Fred Alexander Barkley

(04 Nov) 1908 - 1989 (24 Jun)





Fred Barkley was an American botanist with research interests in Mexican and Central American flora. While curator of the herbarium (now called the Plant Resources Center) at the University of Texas in Austin, he initiated collection efforts in Mexico and Texas, and facilitated the exchange of Latin American material with other herbaria. Barkley produced a monograph on the genus Rhus for his doctoral research, and named a new genus in the Anacardiaceae in 1937. Barkley published several papers on the genus Begonia in his later years. His original set of Mexican collections (1944-1947) is at the University of Texas at Austin (TEX). Some duplicates of his collections are at Cornell University (BH).
