Meredith Cosgrove has spent decades crouching in front of plants to capture them on camera. In 2014 she published the wordily-titled Photographic Guide to Native Plants of the Australian Capital Territory. In 2018 she co-authored the Field Guide to Plants of the Molonglo Valley with Richard Milner and Russell Barrett.

She has a PhD in botany from the department of Evolution and Ecology at the Australian National University.
