DECEMBER 10 -- TODAY IN THE HISTORICAL SCIENCES

1911: JOSEPH DALTON HOOKER dies at Sunningdale, England.  Hooker was the
leading systematic botanist and phytogeographer of his day, and had overseen
with Charles Lyell the first publication of the evolutionary theories of
Darwin and Wallace.  His extensive travel in the southern hemisphere and in
Asia led to the publication of _Flora Antarctica_ (1844-1847) and _Flora
Indica_ (1855), among many other works.  Hooker became consistent advocate
of evolution following the publication of the _Origin of Species_ in 1859,
and succeeded his father, William Jackson Hooker, as director of the Royal
Botanic Gardens at Kew in 1865.

Today in the Historical Sciences is a feature of Darwin-L, an international
discussion group on the history and theory of the historical sciences.  For
