Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cornelius Herman ("Neil") Muller (July 22, 1909 - January 26, 1997) was an American botanist and ecologist who pioneered the study of allelopathy. After graduating from the University of Illinois in 1938 with a Ph.D. in Botany, Muller worked for the Illinois Natural History Survey for one year and then for the US Department of Agriculture in various capacities from 1938-1945. Summers were usually spent on plant collecting trips to Mexico, the Southwest, and the southern United States. His work focused on vegetation studies in Texas and Mexico and most prominently on oaks. Muller married Katherine Kinsel, also a botanist, who directed the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden from 1950-1973. She was a partner with her husband in much of his vegetation studies and oak collecting trips, sharing in the creation of the extensive field notes found in this collection. He and Katherine also collaborated on a publication about Jean-Louis Berlandier's plant collecting in Mexico in the 1820s. Muller died in Santa Barbara on January 26, 1997 at the age of 88.show more
