The Swedish Linnaeus Society (Svenska Linnésällskapet) is devoted to the study of Carl Linnaeus. Founded at a meeting in Hammarby, the country house of Linnaeus outside Uppsala, on May 23, 1917 (the 210th birthday of Carl Linnaeus), the Society celebrates its centenary this month. To mark this event and the close relationship between the Linnean Society of London and the Swedish Linnaeus Society, we are publishing virtual issues of the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, the Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society and the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society. These showcase examples of recent work by Swedish researchers (and researchers based in Sweden), shown in italics, that have been published in our journals and that demonstrate the global reach of Swedish science.

Vi gratulerar Svenska Linnésällskapet till detta stora jubileum!
