Gerard, John

(jĕr`ärd, jərärd`), 1545–1612, English botanist and barber-surgeon. He compiled a catalog (1596) of the plants in his garden, the first of its kind to be published in England. He is best known for his Herball (1597), largely an adaptation of other works to which he added bits of folklore and some original observations.
