Sketch of Professor Geoff Baylis
In 2003, local Dunedin artist Murray Webb was commissioned by Dr David Holdsworth to make a sketch of Professor Geoff Baylis. It was presented to the eminent botanist at his 90th birthday celebrations, and features Baylis sitting amidst leaves of Pennantia baylisiana, the rarest tree in the world. This plant was discovered by Baylis while on a field trip on Great Island, part of Three Kings, 64 kms north of Cape Maria van Dieman, in 1963.
