History of forest research in Finland. Part 1. The unknown forest

History of forest research in Finland Part 1 The unknown forest: 142 pp.

History of forest research in Finland. Part 1. The unknown forest

This book investigates how and why forests came under scientific scrutiny in Finland. The development of forest science and scientific research in Finland from the 1840s to the start of the 1920s is described, with reference to the relationship between forest research and the values and expectations of 19th century Finnish society. The view that Finland was covered by virgin forest before the emergence of modern large-scale forestry is questioned.
