James Lauritz Reveal (1941 – January 9, 2015)[1] was a botanist who is perhaps best known for his work on suprageneric names, presented in an extensive website, which also presents material on plant taxonomy including the Reveal system.[2] He also published extensively on the North American flora and he was a member of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group and one of the authors of the APG II and APG III classifications.

At his death, Reveal was a professor emeritus at the University of Maryland, adjunct professor at Cornell University's Department of Plant Biology and honorary curator at the New York Botanical Garden.[3]
