MÜLLER, Ferdinand von (1825-96). A German naturalist. He was born in Rostock, studied at Kiel, and in 1848 went to Australia, where he was for several years engaged in botanic explorations, and was director of the Melbourne Public Garden (1857-73). His researches on the subject of the acclimatization of plants yielded highly valuable results. Müller wrote: Fragmenta Phytographia Australiæ (1862-81); Plants of Victoria (1860-65); Flora Australiana (7 vols., 1863-70); and Select Extratropical Plants (1891).
