Biographical entry Dunlop, Clyde Robert (1946 - )

26 January 1946
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia


Clyde Robert Dunlop was a botanist and curator at the Northern Territory Herbarium from 1970 to 2000. He contributed significantly to expanding the specimen collection at the Darwin and Alice Springs herbaria from a little over 40,000 to about 220,000 collections. He was also active in setting up the herbarium specimen database, and two major publications about the Top End flora were published under his leadership: Atlas of the vascular plant genera of the Northern Territory(1986) and Flora of the Darwin Region, vol. 2 (1995). In 1978, Brooker and Dunlop named three eucalypt species, and in 1992, Dunlop and Done described a new species from the Kimberley region in Western Australia.
