Frank Kingdon-Ward links page.


Websites used for reference in creating this page. Most of the biographical information has come from Frank Kingdon-Ward's own books, his sister's unpublished biography, and from private family archives. However a great deal of additional detail particularly to do with plant species and collection numbers, has been gleaned from a variety of databases.

Tropicos, database of plant species. This site has been useful in filling gaps in the list of plant species attributed to Frank Kingdon-Ward's collections. Collection numbers locations etc.
Jans Alpines has been a useful source of excellent photographs of some of the alpine plants that Frank collected. His travels have taken him to many of the same places that Frank visited and his colour photographs do greater justice to the flowers than Frank's B&W plates could ever do.
