Mr. D. A. Jones


MB. DANIEL ANGELL JONES, formerly secretary and afterwards president of the British Bryological Society, who died at Bristol on October 6 in his seventy-sixth year, has long been a familiar figure among Welsh botanists. Whilst he was a schoolmaster at Harlech his assistance was often invoked by botanists interested in the flora of North Wales, especially of Merionethshire and Carnarvonshire. His keen eye and wonderful memory of detail, locality and habitat were well known to phanerogamic botanists, and in the detection of bryophytes and lichens he was unrivalled.
