About this book

Language: English

An itinerary of the botanical journeys by the Finnish botanists A. K. Cajander and J. I. Lindroth (later Liro) to Russian Karelia and the Onega River in 1898 and 1899 has been compiled and documented from literature, manuscript and herbarium specimens. The visited localities are shown on maps, and an alphabetic gazetteer also indicates their geographic location. At present the localities are situated in the Republic of Karelia or in the Arkhangel'sk, Leningrad or Vologda Regions, all within the Russian Federation. A catalogue of the moss records (193 species), liverwort records (18 species) and lichen records (68 species) by Cajander and Lindroth is presented. The first set of their collections and most of their manuscripts are housed in the Botanical Museum, Finnish Museum of Natural History. Many species are new reports for the recognized floristic provinces of East Fennoscandia. Proposals are made to improve the exact course of the biogeographic eastern boundary of Fennoscandia in light of Cajander's observations and recent geological evidence.
