Timothy John Entwisle (born 1960), is an Australian botanist,[2] much of whose research work is in phycology (algae). See for example the articles.[3][4][5][6] He was awarded a Ph.D. from La Trobe University in 1986 for work on the taxonomy of Vaucheria.[7]

He was New South Wales’ Government Botanist in 2007 and 2008,[8][9] and for eight years was the executive director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney (2003–2011).[10][11] Subsequently, he was director of Conservation, Living Collections and Estates, Kew, London from 2011,[12][13] and since 2013 he has been director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.[10] He is an honorary professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne and is currently (2020) president of the International Association of Botanic Gardens.[14]

As director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, Entwisle managed Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens, the Mount Tomah Botanic Garden, in the Blue Mountains and the Mount Annan Botanic Garden, near Camden,[13] and at Kew, he was responsible for Kew Gardens, Wakehurst Place, and the Millennium Seed Bank.[13] A major project on taking up the Victorian appointment has been succession planning for the gardens under climate change.[15]

He values communicating with the general public as well as the scientific community. He is interviewed on radio frequently[16][17][18][19][20][21] and had a program, Talking Plants, on ABC radio,,[22] which ran from December 2014[23] to January 2016.[24] He is a regular contributor to the ABC radio program, Blueprint for living.[25] He also writes blogs on plants,[26][27] and articles for Gardening Australia.[28]

He continues to publish in phycology.[29][30][31]

The standard author abbreviation Entwisle is used to indicate this person as the author when citing a botanical name.[32]
