Leslie Newton Goodding

(1880-1967) Leslie Newton Goodding was an american botanist and educator who went on many collecting expeditions in the Southwest. He initially collected specimens for sale but later turned to education and preservation. His conservation efforts, specifically erosion control in Arizona led to the formation of the now protected Goodding Research Area in Sycamore Canyon. Many of his collected specimens were new to science and some of them can be seen below.
