Societas pro Fauna et Flora Fennica – 200 years. A survey of the activities 1997–2021
When Societas pro Fauna et Flora Fennica celebrated its 175 years jubilee, Professor Henrik Wallgren wrote an outline about the Society´s activity since the foundation of the Society in 1821.
This report will concentrate on the activities of the Society during the last 25 years. Annual reports in Finnish and Swedish on the Society’s activities and in Swedish on the activities taking place at the Nåtö Biological Station have been published every year in Memoranda Societatis pro Fauna et Flora Fennica.
The focus of the Society has changed during the years. Three main fields of activity have continued over the years, namely the arrangement of one main conference about a specific topic per year, supporting students and young scientists with scholarships and the scientific work performed at the Nåtö Biological Station in the Åland Islands.
