This brief biography summarises the life of Scots-born Robert Kidston, who arguably became the best and most influential palaeobotanist of his day. His collections of slides (deposited in the Botany collection University of Glasgow), together with the hand specimens and notebooks (deposited in the collections of the British Geological Survey, Nottingham) provide a wealth of important scientific data with modern applications in plant taxonomy, biostratigraphy and palaeoclimatic reconstruction.
