This is a list of botanists who have Wikipedia articles, in alphabetical order by surname. The List of botanists by author abbreviation is mostly a list of plant taxonomists because an author receives a standard abbreviation only when that author originates a new plant name.
Botany is one of the few sciences which can boast, since the Middle Ages, of a substantial participation by women. A new international database Women in Botany contains biographical and bibliographical information on almost 10.000 women active in all fields of botany.
