Alan W. Meerow es un botánico estadounidense, nacido en New York en 1952 y especializado en la taxonomía de la familia de las Amarilidáceas.

Estudió en el "Bronx High School of Science" y luego en la Universidad de Nueva York durante un año. Abandonó la carrera de Literatura y de Filosofía y se mudó a Santa Cruz, California, a los 19 años. Luego de vivir en una granja durante 4 años decidió empezar nuevamente sus estudios en Botánica y Horticultura en la Universidad de California en Davis.

Inicialmente su interés en la botánica se centró en los árboles, trabajando durante 3 años en el Arboretum de la Universidad. Se graduó en diciembre de 1978 y continuó sus estudio de posgrado en la Universidad de Florida. Desarrolló su tesis de maestría en la taxonomía del género Eucharis, la cual presentó en 1983. Continuó con el mismo tema en su tesis doctoral que defendió en 1986.

A partir de esos trabajos iniciales, el Dr. Meerow desarrolló una impresionante cantidad de investigaciones en torno a la filogenia y taxonomía de las Amarilidáceas. Además, se desempeña como fitomejorador de Hippeastrum y otras especies ornamentales en el Servcio de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos. En 1998 la "International Bulb Association" le concedió la Medalla Herbert en reconocimiento a sus contribuciones en el conocimiento de las plantas bulbosas.

En 2008 trabaja en la Unidad de Genética Vegetal del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA), con sede en Miami, en la conservación, caracterización, y mejoramiento genético de especies ornamentales subtropicales y tropicales.[1]
