Joseph Banks was a naturalist and botanist on Cook's first great voyage in 1768-1771. He is credited with bringing eucalyptus, mimosa and plants of the genus "Banksia" to the Western world. He made his name by publishing descriptions of the plants and animals of Newfoundland, including the penguin-like Great Auk (extinct by 1844). Upon his return from Cook's expedition he was elected President of the Royal Society, a position he held for over forty years. His "Florilegium" contains the first descriptions of hundreds of species from Australia, previously unknown to Western science.
