Author: James L. Reveal

James Lauritz Reveal (March 29, 1941 – January 9, 2015) was a botanist who is perhaps best known for his work on suprageneric names, presented in an extensive website, which also presents material on plant taxonomy including the Reveal system. He also published extensively on the North American flora and he was a member of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group and one of the authors of the APG II and APG III classifications. At his death, Reveal was a professor emeritus at the University of Maryland, adjunct professor at Cornell University's Department of Plant Biology and honorary curator at the New York Botanical Garden. Research interests included floristic studies in western North America (including endangered and threatened species), examination of historical specimens gathered in temperate North America, monographic studies on Polygonaceae subfam. Eriogonoideae, botanical nomenclature, history of botanical explorations in the New World, and a review of suprageneric nomenclature, including vascular plant family nomenclature and an evaluation of systems of classification at and above the family level. The most recent efforts involve a joint effort with Dr. Robert F. Thorne entitled "An updated classification of the Class Magnoliopsida ("Angiospermae")" published in Botanical Review (2007), a new version of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification of flowering plants (APG-III, 2009), and a personal view of angiosperm classification entitled "An outline of a classification scheme for extant flowering plants."
