Abstract [en]

The 1950s saw a series of miscarriages of justice against public persons in Sweden. In one of these, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences tried to force Olof Selling from his professorship in paleobotany at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, on the basis of mental illness, but this failed after a long and public calamity. In his book Naturen inför rätta [Nature facing trial], Keith Wijkander (2017) claims that Selling was the victimof a century-long conflict between botanists in Uppsala and Stockholm,and places Selling in the Uppsala camp. We try to give a more balanced picture of the relationships between plant ecology in Uppsala and Stockholm during the early 20th century. R. Sernander, L.-G. Romell and G. E. Du Rietz are among the main actors. The fierce debates between the two camps make this an interesting period in Swedish botany.
