No. 12 November 1980 

Hermann August Theodor Harms 

Berlin-born into a professionally 
prominent (from both sides) family, 
Harms was enrolled in a private 
school in the city for his earliest 
education. Later, after eight years 
in the Askanische Gymnasium, he 
matriculated in the "philosophischen 
Fakultat of Berlin’s Friedrich- 
Wilhelm-Universitat . At the end of 
his studies, mostly devoted to natural 
history and mathematics, he graduated 
22 February 1893 with a dissertation 
on the use of anatomical structure in 
the classification of the 
Passif loraceae . 

Adolf Engler, having early recog- 
nized Harms’ talent for systematics, 
invited him to join the staff of the 
Botanical Museum of Berlin which 
Engler headed. Hams served there as a 
general assistant and Lecture-assistant, 
until 1 April 1896 when he became a 
scientific assistant. He rapidly 
established a reputation for sound 
science, dedication, and a willingness to 
taxonomy by his research and, especially by his editorial work with "Das 
Pflanzenreich", with his and C. G. de Dalla Torre's "Genera Siphonogamarum", 
and with his editorship (after 1930) of the second edition of "Naturlichen 
Pflanzenfamilien" . Hams was also an important nomenclaturist, participating 
in the International Botanical Congresses at Vienna, Brussels, Cambridge, and 
Amsterdam. He was largely responsible for the provision in the Code pemitting 
conservation of generic names to avoid disadvantageous changes in nomenclature. 
He was a member of the most prestigious botanical societies, and in 1906 he was 
awarded the title of Professor.

Hanns had many interests among the flowering plants, both monocots and 
dicots, but none led to so many publications as did his study of the 
Leguminosae. If one consults his bibliography, it will be seen that no 
fewer than 147 titles treat legumes from one part of the world or another -- 
South America, Africa, Pacific Islands, mostly tropical species. Scores 
of new genera and species are credited to him, most of which still stand. 

Personally Harms was a modest, retiring, almost shy person; in his work 
with others he felt most comfortable in the background. Yet he was always 
ready to be helpful to anyone, to give counsel, and many younger colleagues 
in the Museum looked to him for his opinions of their research. Just two 
days before his death he was at the Museum working in the library. [Notes 
from the Nachruf by G. M. Schulze, Bot. Jahrb . 74 (3) : 349-374 . 1949. See

A new journal, LEGUME RESEARCH, has been initiated by the Agricultural 
Research Communication Centre, Sadar, Karnal, India, with Dr. S. Chandra 
as the chief editor, supported by an international editorial board. The 
journal, which will appear twice annually, is designed to highlight the 
fundamental and applied aspects of legume physiology, genetics, breeding, 
bacterial activity, product quality and technological aspects of 
cultivation, processing and evaluation. Annual subscription: Rs. 40.00, 

$ 8.00, or $15.00 (one year); Vol. 3, 1979-80. Rs. 100.00,^20.00, or 
$40.00 (three years). [From Taxon 29:518.] 


The Leucaena Newsletter "will be started in 1980 as an annual bulletin 
with brief research reports on leucaena. Later newsletters may extend to 
other woody leguminous genera." If you are interested, write to: Dr. James 

L. Brewbaker, Department of Horticulture, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, 

HI 96822 U.S.A. 



The first issue of LUPINE NEWSLETTER has just been received (Nov. 1980) . 
It was bom out of enthusiastic discussions among specialists at the First 
International Lupine Workshop in Lima, Peru. The first issue lists the 
Board members (Chairman, Dr. Rainer Gross) who reflect a broad spectrum 
of interests most of which are not directly taxonomic in nature but which 
are of concern and interest to taxonomists (proteins, breeding, alkaloids, 
etc.). For further information and subscriptions, write to: The Inter- 

national Lupine Association, Jr. Tizon y Buena 276, Lima, Peru.
