The Linnean Society of London elected William “Ned” Friedman, professor of organismic and evolutionary biology at Harvard, and director of the Arnold Arboretum, as a Foreign Member, honoring his research into the reproductive biology of flowering plants and their ancestors, as well as his interest in the intellectual history of evolutionism. Friedman is one of only 50 scholars worldwide to receive the honor.
The Linnean Society, founded in 1788 by Sir James Edward Smith, is named for Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus. The Society preserves Linnaeus’ botanical, zoological and library collections. The Arnold Arboretum is a public-private partnership of the City of Boston and Harvard University.
