Nigel Morritt Wace (10 January 1929 India – 4 February 2005 Canberra, Australia) was an authority on the plant life of the four Tristan da Cunha Islands, islands he first visited in 1955 when he visited Gough Island  . Wace, Nigel Morritt (1973).

"Nigel Wace - Telegraph". Retrieved 19 May 2012. Wace produced the first detailed description of the Gough Island's vegetation, and this later earned him a PhD from the Queen's University, Belfast. After the volcanic eruption on Tristan da Cunha in 1961, he collaborated with Jim Dickson to prepare what is still the most authoritative overview of the flora of the Tristan islands' group.

Wace, Nigel Morritt (1973). Young Nigel attended Brambletye School in Sussex before going to Sheikh Bagh preparatory school in Kashmir, where a strong emphasis on outdoor activities left him, he said, with "a continuing delight and inquisitive interest indifferent sorts of landscape and people"

Early History The first settlers arrived around 50,000 years ago. This was at a time when sea levels were lower and the land was less fertile. The central dry areas had not attracted settlers until about 25,000 years ago. The population grew more and more around 10,000 years ago as the climate improved. First Arrivals 17th century: The first European sightings of Australia were made by a Dutchman called Willem Janszoon on the Duyfken (Little Dove). Janszoon sailed into Australian waters charting 300 km of the coast.
