Although best known for his system of nomenclature in botany, Carl Linnaeus is also noted for his travel books about the Swedish provinces. Anders Björling and Roland Thorstensson retraced two of Linnaeus’ journeys and will talk about these journeys in a well-illustrated presentation.

This program was part of the 2010 Nordic Spirit Symposium, The Nordic Explorers: From Polar Frontiers to the Silk Road.
