Dr. Grady Webster (1927-2005) was a world renowned expert on the spurge family sensu lato (Euphorbiaceae), a curious and voracious reader (and book collector), and major plant collector in numerous areas of the world but especially Ecuador, Texas, Baja California, the West Indies, and many island habitats. He was the Director of the Botany Department Herbarium at UC Davis from 1986 until his retirement in 1993. With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Grady Webster Euphorbiaceae Resources website has been developed to provide a virtual herbarium of specimen images of the genera Phyllanthus, Croton, Euphorbia (sensu lato), and Dalechampia, as well as links to published and unpublished taxonomic papers and keys that are pertinent to these genera. By providing these resources, we hope to both assist and inspire another generation of researchers to continue Grady’s work.
