Summary
The essays written by named scientists from all over Europe and brought together in the volume A passion for plants investigate the creation and transmission of botanical and pharmacobotanical knowledge in the early modern period (16th to 18 century). This process was multifaceted and complex in terms of the types of knowledge, the participation of persons from diverse social backgrounds, and the practices involved. A particular focus of attention is on the role of apothecaries and the connections between academic and non-academic investigations.--
