About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Slovene

This is a monograph on Fleischmann's parsnip (Pastinaca fleischmanni), which differs from the common parsnip for its double feathery leaves, the shape and serration of leaves and, partially, also by the colour of leaves, which is a somewhat darker green than that of the common parsnip. Other than its habitat at Ljubljana Castle, where the plant grew from 1819 to around 1835, no other habitat was found for the plant. There is no uniform opinion about its emergence. Some claim that the plant emerged as a hereditary change (a mutation) at the Ljubljana Botanical Gardens, while others believe that it in fact grew at the Ljubljana Castle. This book describes the plant's history and the biological characteristics of this plant.
