About this book

Language: Swedish

The Taraxacum flora of the Northern part of Finnish Lapland was studied and specimens were collected in 1954, 1967, and later more regularly, almost every year from 1973 to 1990. A list is presented of species belonging to the sections Boreigena, Ceratophora, Erythrosperma, Borea, and Vulgaria (Ruderalia). In addition, 3 species from the section Spectabilia are included. The total number of species is 143. A list of the localities is given for each species, and 8 distribution maps are presented. Taxonomic problems especially concerning sectio Borea are discussed. Many species, belonging to sect. Vulgaria, were probably introduced in the 1940's with hay-transports of the German troops. The collected specimens are kept in the Botanical Museum, University of Helsinki.
