Jonas Carlsson Dryander (5 March 1748 – 19 October 1810) was a Swedish botanist. Dryander was born in Gothenburg. He was a pupil of Carl Linnaeus at Uppsala University. He arrived in London on 10 July 1777. He was botanist/librarian to Sir Joseph Banks from 1782 (following the death of Daniel Solander), librarian of the Royal Society and Vice-President of the Linnean Society. Dryander's publications included Catalogus bibliothecae historico-naturalis Josephi Banks (1796-1800). In 1784, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The genus Dryandra was named in his honour by his friend and fellow Swede Thunberg. The standard author abbreviation Dryand. is used to indicate this person as the author when citing a botanical name. References
