Dr. Fosberg was a botanist especially noted for his work on tropical and Pacific basin vegetation. He was also the founder and editor of Atoll Research Bulletin, a well-known and frequently consulted conservationist, and a several time organizer of major scientific conferences. He was associated at various times with the U. S. Department of Agriculture, United States Geological Survey, and Smithsonian Institution. In 1966 he joined the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in the Ecology program. In 1968 Fosberg transferred to the Department of Botany, where he became curator.

He published more than 600 papers on plant classification, plant distribution, ecology and conservation, and contributed to many scientific books.
