About this book

Language: Norwegian

Botanikkens Historie i Norge is the first book that describes the development of the discipline botany in this country. It builds on many years of scrutiny of sources arising from the initial clues that Norway's ancestors carved into the stone until 1964, 150 years after Norway got its first professorship in the subject in Norway.

The book is illustrated with much original material found in archives and herbaria. It is intended for students on basic courses in biology and botany, but one need not be an expert to read it. Botany buffs will enjoy the book as well.

Summary in Norwegian:
Botanikkens historie i Norge er den første boken som beskriver utviklingen av faget botanikk her i landet. Den bygger på mange års gransking av kilder som skriver seg helt fra de første spor som våre forfedre risset inn i stein og frem til 1964, 150 år etter at vi fikk vårt første professorat i faget i Norge.

Boken er illustrert med mye originalmateriale som er funnet i arkiver og herbarier. Den er beregnet på studenter på grunnleggende kurs i biologi og botanikk, men en trenger ikke være fagperson for å lese den. Botanikkinteresserte vil ha stor glede av boken.
