Muelleria (journal)

Muelleria is a peer-reviewed scientific journal on botany published by the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.[1] It focuses on topics relating to plants, algae, and fungi in the southern hemisphere and Australia in particular.[2] The journal was named in honour of Victorian Government botanist Ferdinand von Mueller.[3] Muelleria commenced publication in 1955 with funding from the Maud Gibson Trust.[3] The trust was initiated in 1945 following the donation of £20,000 by Maud Gibson, a daughter of William Gibson, founder of the Foy & Gibson department store chain.[4]
