Abstract

Nils Güttler’s monograph on the history of geobotanical maps is an empirically rich and eloquent study. It builds on a dissertation written at the Humboldt University and the Max Planck Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte in Berlin. At the heart of Güttler’s analysis is the claim that our present-day understanding of vegetation maps as distinct epistemic tools in botany and ecology was significantly shaped by their “users” in the long nineteenth century.
