Jonas Carlsson Dryander (5 March 1748 – 19 October 1810) was a Swedish botanist.

Dryander was born in Gothenburg. He was a pupil of Carl Linnaeus at Uppsala University. He arrived in London on 10 July 1777. He was botanist/librarian to Sir Joseph Banks from 1782 (following the death of Daniel Solander), librarian of the Royal Society and Vice-President of the Linnean Society.

Dryander's publications included Catalogus bibliothecae historico-naturalis Josephi Banks (1796-1800).

In 1784, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The genus Dryandra was named in his honour by his friend and fellow Swede Thunberg.[1]
