Thomas William Woodhead (1863-1940) was an English plant ecologist. He was an early proponent of ecology, who helped prompt the growth of plant ecology as a discipline in England, and later became Professor of Biology at Huddersfield Technical College.[1] He was appointed the Soppitt Librarian by the Yorkshire Naturalists' Union after the death of Henry Thomas Soppitt (mycologist) in 1899 and was later the first director of the Tolson Museum.
