Abstract

According to the literature there were two botanists, who used maps, possibly for the first time, to illustrate the distribution of plants: Georg Wahlenberg in 1812 and Alphonse de Candolle in 1855. The map of Wahlenberg, however, ought to be considered the first vegetation map and Joachim Schouw had produced the first real plant distribution map in his "Plantegeographisk Atlas," published in 1824.
