Skäne to Lappland – Travels through Sweden with Carl Linnaeus
by Anders Björling, Nature Photographer and Prof. Roland Thorstensson, Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota
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.
